The U.S. government is trying to intervene in tax appeal by Apple in the EU

The creator of the iPhone, Apple took its case to the Luxembourg General Court, in December after the European Commission published a record of the tax request, which stated that an American company won a favorable tax deal with the Irish government, which amounted to illegal subsidies.

The decision was criticized by the Obama administration, which said that the European Union helped to visualize the cash that was supposed to end in the U.S.

The Trump administration, which previously offered a tax break in the amount of $2.6 trillion in the form of profits from the profit located in an offshore zone in its tax reform, has not published anything on the case.

The source, who declined to be named, said that he could confirm the United States has filed an application with the European Union General Court to intervene in the case involving the retroactive application of state aid rules to Apple.

The General Court is expected to hear the case in late 2018, another source said.

Apple has said it was a convenient target for the EU and that the EU competition enforcer used an absurd theory to come up with a punitive figure.

Ireland, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Starbucks, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and several other companies that were also ordered to pay back taxes to other EU countries also challenged their decisions of the EU.
