PARIS — A French court annulled a $1.27 billion tax adjustment imposed on Google by France’s tax authorities, saying Wednesday that the way the Mountain View firm operates in France allows it to be exempt from most taxes.The French tax administration had argued that Google was required to pay taxes in France for 2005-10 because the company and its Irish subsidiary sold a service for inserting online ads to clients in France through its search engine.The court added that Google France doesn’t have the human resources or the technical means to allow it to carry out the contentious advertising services on its own.In their ruling, the judges noted that the ads ordered by French clients could not be put online by the employees of Google France themselves because any ad orders ultimately needed approval from Google Ireland Limited.Wednesday’s ruling comes amid mounting criticism that the tech firms and other major U.S. companies have scrimped on their tax bills through a variety of accounting maneuvers that have rankled governments around the world.
