Apple has said it pays all the tax it owes amid an investigation into its operations in Ireland.
Success and growth come from the hard work of our Irish employees, not from any special tax deal with the Irish Government.
We have received no selective treatment from Irish officials. Apple is subject to the same tax laws as scores of other international companies doing business in Ireland.
Apple pays every euro of every tax that we owe. Since the iPhone launched in 2007, our taxes in Ireland have increased tenfold.
