SEATTLE -- Company leaders from Starbucks had to face a inquiry from the British government Monday, regarding taxes.

The British Parliament committee wanted to know how Starbucks paid nearly no corporate taxes in the UK, while doing billions of dollars in sales there.

Google and amazon.com are facing similar inquiries.

Leaders in Britain said that questionable tax payments undermine public trust in the entire tax system.
