European beer cartels fined millions 

European Union regulators fined Heineken NV, Grolsch NV and Bavaria NV nearly 275 million pounds ($370 million dollars) on Wednesday for fixing Dutch beer prices from at least 1996 through 1999. InBev SA, the world’s largest brewer, was exempted from a potential fine of 84 million pounds ($114 million dollars) because it blew the whistle on several European beer cartels.


The Internal Revenue Service said Wednesday it would not penalize TurboTax and ProSeries users whose 11th-hour electronic returns were delayed by Intuit Inc.’s (INTU) overloaded servers. A record number of returns — 50 to 60 a second at its peak — filed with the Mountain View company started causing delays, and as the midnight filing deadline approached, the problem got worse.
