Apple isn't being punished. No penalty is being levied. They've been order to pay the back taxes they owe. Taxes that should have been paid all along.

Apple still made out pretty sweet on this deal even with having to pay back taxes. Interest accrued on billions is a nice chunk of change.

You are absolutely crazy if you think Apple lawyers hadn't considered this possibility. Note that Apple isn't being fined here. The EU ordered Ireland to collect back taxes. Taxes that would have been owed had the subsidy deal not been made.

Apple basically got a decades worth of tax deferments here. Still a good deal for them.
