MILAN, April 28 Milan tax police have told
Amazon they believes the world's largest online retailer has
evaded around 130 million euros ($142 million) of taxes in
Italy, a source close to the matter said on Friday.
The allegedly unpaid taxes refer to the period between 2011
and 2015, when Amazon made revenues of around 2.5
billion euros in Italy, the source said.
The tax police's findings have been handed to Milan
prosecutors, the source added.
Amazon issued a statement denying it had evaded any taxes,
and said its profits in Italy, on which taxes are paid, had been
low due to its considerable investments in the country.
