【Apple intends to fight against the EU's $14 billion sky-high tax bill】 Hong Kong Telecom News 16, Apple will fight in court this week against the world's largest tax case in an attempt to ease the hostility of EU antitrust executives against the Internet giant before the EU launches a new round of crackdowns on the company. Apple will tell the European Union's Permanent Court of Justice in Luxembourg that it is the world's largest taxpayer. But that's not enough for European Union competition commissioner Margrethe Vestage, who said in a 2016 ruling that the tax agreement between Apple (AAPL.O) and Ireland resulted in the company paying far less than other companies. The court must now weigh whether regulators should impose a record 13 billion euros ($14.4 billion) tax. Apple declined to comment before the hearing. The European Commission also declined to comment. Ireland said it "resolutely" disagreed with the EU's findings. The first clue to the final outcome of Apple's case will be revealed in two rulings on September 24.
