                 Tax Breaks
                 (05/24/99, 6:39 a.m. ET)
                 By Reuters 

                 LONDON - U.S. computer giant Microsoft
                 will demand this week that the British
                 government reduce Value Added Tax on
                 goods bought over the Internet and
                 introduce tax breaks for buyers of personal
                 computers, the Times reported in its
                 Monday edition. 

                 Microsoft would also attack the government's
                 forthcominge-commerce bill as being inflexible and
                 inconsistent with the existing online business
                 models, the newspaper said.
