Not liable to pay taxes for Indian ops: Google

American multinational Google Inc on Thursday submitted to Delhi High Court that it is not liable to pay any taxes in India for its internet activities, as it is not providing any taxable services or earning income from here nor does it have a permanent establishment in the country.

The submission has been made in an affidavit filed by the website in the High Court which is hearing a plea by a former BJP leader seeking protection of children from online abuse and recovery of taxes from the websites on their income from operations in India.

The website's claim has been opposed by the petitioner, K N Govindacharya, who in his affidavit has contended that sites like Facebook Inc and Google Inc are liable to pay taxes as they generate huge revenue through agreements with Indian advertisers as well as sale of games and applications to internet users here. The case is slated to be heard by Justice B D Ahmed on Friday.
