Abstract
Taxes are the largest source of state revenue which functions as a source of funds intended for financing government expenditures and as a tool to regulate and implement policies in the social and economic fields and are used for the greatest welfare of the people. Therefore, corporate and individual taxpayers are expected to comply with their tax obligations voluntarily and comply with tax regulations. Taxpayer non-compliance can cause disruption to State finances. One of the ways of non-compliance is done by means of tax avoidance. The objectives of this study are as follows: 1) To find empirical evidence regarding the effect of independent boards of commissioners on tax avoidance; 2) Finding empirical evidence regarding the effect of the audit committee on tax avoidance; 3) Finding empirical evidence regarding the effect of audit quality on tax avoidance; 4) Finding empirical evidence regarding the effect of disclosure of corporate social responsibility on tax avoidance; 5) Finding empirical evidence regarding the extent to which firm size can moderate the relationship between independent boards of commissioners and tax avoidance; 6) Finding empirical evidence regarding the extent to which firm size can moderate the relationship between the audit committee and tax avoidance; 7) Finding empirical evidence regarding the extent to which firm size can moderate the relationship between audit quality and tax avoidance; and 8) Finding empirical evidence regarding the extent to which firm size can moderate the relationship between disclosure of corporate social responsibility and tax avoidance. This type of research used in this research is casual associative research (causal associative research).
