Vale’s Request to Cancel $394.7 Million in Unpaid Tax Denied

Vale SA, the world’s largest iron-ore producer, was denied a request to cancel 742 million reais ($394.7 million) in unpaid tax claims from before June 2000.

Vale, based in Rio de Janeiro, is liable for the unpaid tax claims, Brazil’s attorney general’s office announced on its website today. The claims stem from differences in the company and government’s calculation of mining royalties owed, the office said.

A Vale official in Rio, who declined to be named citing corporate policy, said the company wouldn’t comment.

Vale declined 1.5 percent to 38.00 reais at the close of trading in Sao Paulo.
