Facebook Loses Bid To Move $7 Billion Tax Case To Appeals

Kelly Phillips Erb

The Facebook Inc. application is seen in the App Store on an Apple Inc. iPhone in Washington, D.C., U.S., on Wednesday, March 21, 2018. A California judge has dealt a blow to Facebook in its ongoing battle with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), ruling that the social media giant does not have a right to move the matter to appeals. In November 2011, the IRS began an audit of Facebook's financials for 2008 and 2009.
