BRUSSELS, May 12 (Reuters) - Amazon on Wednesday welcomed an EU court ruling annulling an EU order to Amazon (AMZN.O) to pay about 250 million euros ($303.28 million) in back taxes to Luxembourg.

"We welcome the Court's decision, which is in line with our long-standing position that we followed all applicable laws and that Amazon received no special treatment," the online retailer said in a statement.

"We're pleased that the Court has made this clear, and we can continue to focus on delivering for our customers across Europe."
