Abstract


This research examines and analyzes the effect of corporate governance structures, political connections, and transfer pricing on tax aggressiveness (CETR and BTD). The theory used in this research is agency theory. The sample of this research is manufacturing companies listed on the Indonesia Stock Exchange for 2014-2018. The sampling method used in this research was purposive sampling and used multiple linear regression as the data analysis method. The results of the study using the cash effective tax rates (CETR) proxy show that the independent board has a positive effect on tax aggressiveness, the audit committee has a negative effect on tax aggressiveness, political connections do not affect tax aggressiveness, and transfer pricing does not affect tax aggressiveness. The result of research with a proxy book-tax difference (BTD) shows that independent commissioners do not influence tax aggressiveness, audit committees positively affect tax aggressiveness, political connections do not affect tax aggressiveness, and transfer pricing does not affect tax aggressiveness. The implication of this research reveals that the companies should follow tax regulations made by the government to do tax planning under applicable laws.
