The Wall Street Journal reports that the European Union has opened an investigation into the tax arrangements between Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq:AMZN) and Luxembourg. The commission is investigating a 2003 tax deal to decide whether Luxemborg provided "illegal state subsidies" to Amazon. This is the latest American company to find itself in hot water over tax agreements in Europe. Other investigations hit Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) and Starbucks Corp. (Nasdaq: SBUX) this year.
