TechNet Statement on the USTR Decision to Delay Section 301 DST Tariffs in Six Countries

Washington, D.C. - Today, TechNet, the national, bipartisan network of innovation economy CEOs and senior executives, issued the following statement in reaction to the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative’s (USTR) release of final tariff lists related to the Section 301 DST investigations for six countries: Austria, India, Italy, Spain, Turkey, and the UK, and the USTR’s decision to delay the application of tariffs for 180 days. The following statement can be attributed to Carl Holshouser, SVP, TechNet:

"TechNet is strongly opposed to digital services taxes that stifle innovation, unfairly target American technology companies, and create barriers to multilateral trade discussions. We laud USTR’s leadership at the OECD for driving a fair, balanced, and innovation-friendly tax model that is good for consumers, job creators, and governments alike. We encourage countries implementing these measures to immediately roll them back and end this anti-innovation practice.”
