ROME— Italian authorities say Apple Italia has agreed to pay 318 million euros ($350 million) in taxes for several past years and is working out a deal to cover future tax liabilities for business it does in the country.

The case is one of several against global technology companies that use headquarters in low-tax nations like Ireland to avoid paying higher taxes in other countries, like Italy.
