1af 88 cover Ireland for Apple tax appeal with EU


According to a new report this morning, a majority of Irish voters believe the Government is right to appeal the European Commission ruling in the Apple case, according to the latest Irish Times/Ipsos MRBI poll. When asked whether the Government was right to appeal the ruling that Apple should pay €13 billion in back tax, 47 per cent said yes, 39 per cent said no. There was however a broad 14 per cent that currently had no opinion which means they could sway either way.

The decision to appeal the ruling caused a storm of controversy both at home and abroad, but the poll shows a majority of people back the Government's stance.


Sinn Féin voters are against the appeal by a small margin, but the strongest opposition to the decision comes from supporters of Independents and smaller parties. This reflects the strong criticism of the Government decision from left-wing Independents and parties as well as the reservations expressed by some of the Independents who are part of the Government. "The left," like American Democrates, believe in heavily taxing corporations.
