Poll: Should we take the Apple money?

The tech giant could be forced to pay up to €19 billion in back taxes when interest is taken into account as a result of the decision.

YESTERDAY THE EU ordered Ireland to recover €13 billion in back taxes from tech giant Apple.

However, the Minister for Finance Michael Noonan insists he will appeal the €13 billion bill.

The Cabinet will meet this morning to discuss the issue and it’s expected that the Government along with Apple will lodge formal appeals.

So in today’s poll we’re asking, do you think we should take the Apple money? 

Poll Results:

Yes  (13504)
No  (7559)
I don't know  (2031)
