Ireland Seen Losing Apple Tax Skirmish, Triggering Legal Battle

  • European authorities will probably censure Ireland on tax
  • Irish government preparing for long legal battle on censure

Ireland will probably face censure from European authorities within months in relation to its tax dealings with Apple Inc., according to a person with knowledge of the matter.

A finding against Ireland will spark a legal battle that may last years, as the government is ready to fight the decision in the European Union Court of Justice, according to the person, who asked not to be named because the case is ongoing.
