RIO DE JANEIRO, Jan 21 (Reuters) - Brazilian state-run oil firm Petrobras has lost an appeal regarding 9 billion reais ($2.14 billion) of disputed taxes dating from 2011 and 2012, the company said on Tuesday, adding that it was not changing how the disputed taxes were classified on its balance sheet.
In a securities filing, Petroleo Brasileiro SA, as the firm is formally known, said it will “take the appropriate judicial measures in its defense.”
