Ireland Approves Apple Tax Appeal After iPhone 7 Launch

The Irish parliament has backed a call to appeal the European Commission's Apple (AAPL) tax ruling.

Last week, the EC ruled that Apple would have to pay €13 billion ($14.5 billion) in back taxes to Ireland. The EC said that "undue benefits" granted to Apple amounted to illegal state subsidies, and will need to be recovered.

Following a lengthy debate the vote was passed by 93 votes to 36. The proposed appeal was widely expected to pass, even though there was vocal opposition to appealing the commission's decision.
