Microsoft to Pay China $140 Million for “Tax Evasion”

China has levied about $140 million in back taxes from Microsoft in the first major case concerning cross-border tax evasion in the country, as regulators ramp up pressure on U.S. corporations doing business there

The story is too old to be commented.

I wonder if there's even a single country in this world which play by the rules? I don't see how China is different?

LMAO probably.
I didn't mean any disrespect to China btw, but their government is not known to play by the rules of international trade. Just thought it was interesting.

good to see these big companies having to pay tax or get fined. they use too much bullying tactics to avoid paying.

however they should have been more careful in china, they make up their own rules as they go along.

I hope this means they will be bringing back businesses to the US now that they know they can't evade taxes anymore.
