Amazon (AMZN +0.3%) acknowledges it received a claim from France's taxing authority for $252M to cover what it calls "the allocation of income between foreign jurisdictions" for the years 2006 through 2010. The move follows efforts by counterparts in the U.K. to question the company along with U.S.-based firms Starbucks and Google over similar issues.
