Sprint Loses Attempt to Skirt $300M Tax Lawsuit

Sprint has been handed a defeat in its attempt to escape a $300 million sales tax case brought against it by the State of New York. New York alleged that Sprint underpaid sales taxes by as much as $130 million during a multi-year period beginning in 2005. Sprint sought to dismiss the case, but was shot down by an appeals court. The decision leaves New York open to pursue Sprint under the state's False Claims Act, which lets the state charge three times the amount underpaid in taxes. Sprint said it was disappointed with the ruling and is exploring its options.

Who would have thought..

That a company who could barelly manage their network would also be able to apparently barelly manage their own business.

I thought it was funny that it says that sprint was "Dissapointed". I'd be pretty dissapointed too if somebody tried to sue me for almost 400 million dollars. Hopefully the state takes every single penny from them.
You are so right. It's funny because it's true! Laughing
No its funny that a government agency tells a company they owe more in taxes. Anytime the government can take more money from people or business they will take it.
T-Mobile fanboy? The State of NY is claiming that Sprint was not charging enough in taxes, Sprint says they were nothing more than that. But u in all your supreme knowledge know about managing a multinational multibillion dollar business. Yeah right.....
1) Most businesses I know, have to file tax claims quarterly. My question is why this wasn't caught earlier?

2) I find it odd that NY is presumably the only state seeking financial restitution from Sprint.

3) Half of my mortgage every month goe...
Yeah well, Im disappointed that I pay Sprint over $100 every month, for crap service they barely provide if any at all, and then get upset when the government tells them they owe them something? Gimme a break Sprint, you should be paying your customer...
