France's tax authority demands that the American Internet giant Google pays 1.6 billion euros in unpaid taxes, reports Reuters.
Google has accumulated a vast debt to the French treasury, claims France.
In June 2011, raids were carried out by the police on Google's offices in Paris.
France's finance ministry has not confirmed the information. But Finance Minister Michel Sapin states that it is unlikely that the French Government will go for a settlement with Google, similar to what Britain did previously.
Google agreed to pay 130 million pounds (172 million euros) to Britain, as compensation for the tax liability, which actually was suspected to have been much higher.
