Macron and Trump declare a truce on digital tax dispute

PARIS, Jan 20 (Reuters) - French President Emmanuel Macron said on Tuesday he had a "great discussion" with U.S. President Donald Trump over a digital tax planned by Paris and said the two countries would work together to avoid a rise in tariffs.

France decided in July to apply a 3% levy on revenue from digital services earned in France by firms with revenues of more than 25 million euros ($28 million) in France and 750 million euros worldwide. Washington has threatened to impose taxes on French products in response. (Reporting by Michel Rose; Writing by Benoit Van Overstraeten; Editing by Angus MacSwan)
