Monaco fight back after tax ruling

http://www.ontheminute.com/news/news.php?news=41891

Monaco have hit back at the French league for ordering them to relocate the club's head office to France.

The club have been instructed to relocate their office so that they are liable to pay tax on player wages. Under the rules of the principality of Monaco, foreign players do not pay tax on their wages.

"We have sent all the necessary documents (for the appeal)," club vice president Jean-Louis Campora told French sports daily L'Equipe.

"We are determined to assert our rights. It is hard for the League to say that the decision is not aimed at us. In two hours, some have tried to throw away Monaco's 90 years of participation in French football."
