Italian Judge Approves Tax Probe Settlement With the Chief of Apple’s Irish Unit
A Milan judge has accepted a settlement agreement with the head of Apple’s Irish-based unit Apple Sales International as part of a probe into allegations the U.S. tech giant failed to pay corporate taxes in Italy to the tune of 879 million euros, a judicial source said.
Under the settlement agreement, a six-month jail sentence for the executive has been converted into the payment of a 45,000 euro ($49,126) fine, the source said.
Under Italian law, a settlement agreement does not imply an admission of guilt.
