Google to Enforce Play Store Tax on the 3 Percent of Apps Not Paying

Alphabet's Google on Monday sought to rebut criticism that it selectively enforces its 30 percent mobile app store tax, demanding that the over 3 percent apps selling digital items without complying follow the rules within a year.

App stores are a fast-growing business as sales of Google's search ads and Apple's iPhone flatten out. Dating app maker Match is among the companies that have publicly said they do not pay Google’s 30 percent fee.
