To: U.S. Treasury Department

Demand Apple Pay What It Owes

In light of the European Commission’s ruling that Apple owes up to $14.5 billion in back taxes to Ireland on its European profits, it is critical that the Treasury Department immediately investigate Apple’s profit shifting and tax dodging here in the United States.

We demand that the Treasury act in the best interests of the American people and ensure that Apple pays all of the taxes it owes here at home.

Why is this important?

The European Commission just found that Apple – with the help of the tax haven of Ireland – has been dodging billions of dollars in taxes. The EC’s ruling states that Apple must pay up to $14.5 billion in back taxes to Ireland on its European profits.

Now it is time for the U.S. Treasury Department to follow suit and investigate Apple’s profit shifting and tax dodging.

Apple has more than $215 billion in profits stashed offshore on which it could owe the American people more than $60 billion in taxes.

Stand with us in demanding that the U.S. Treasury Department immediately investigate Apple for profit shifting and U.S. tax avoidance. Demand that Apple pay what it owes to America in back taxes!
