From the Royal Netherlands Embassy in Washington, “The Netherlands: attractive location for foreign investors, but not a low-tax country“:
On May 3rd, the White House presented a fact-sheet titled ‘Leveling the playing field’, which states among other things that The Netherlands is a ‘low-tax country’. That led to some misinterpretation. Dutch Ambassador to the USA, Renée Jones-Bos, conveyed this message to the White House, the Treasury Department and the Department of State. The White House has adjusted the fact sheet accordingly.
Seems like a pretty fundamental mistake. All the news reports we’ve seen have been based on comments from Dutch government sources. Will the White House or Treasury comment?
