The UK boss of Google claims he "does not know how much he gets paid" as he was grilled by MPs today.
Matt Brittin said he "understood the anger and frustration" of UK taxpayers over his company's £130 million tax deal with HMRC.
But Public Accounts Committee chair Meg Hillier hit back: "Do you really understand the anger Mr Brittin? What do you get paid?"
Mr Brittin repeatedly dodged the question saying: "I don't have the exact figure" and would provide it to the committee "privately, if it was relevant".
When pressed further, Ms Hillier said: "My point is, taxpayers out there, our constituents, are very angry.
"They live in a different world to you, clearly, if you can't even tell us what you actually get paid. I wonder if you've got tin ears."
Earlier the committee heard Google's Chief Executive was paid £138 million in the last year alone.
Google says it plays by the rules, HM Revenue & Customs seems satisfied, the trouble is MPs don't seem to believe that HMRC is competent.
Concerns about the way Google and other multinationals pay tax have been around for at least three years.
