Taxpayer Attitude on the Elimination of Tax Sanction and Taxation Awareness toward Taxpayer Compliance in Yogyakarta
The impact of tax on state revenue is very dominant these days. This happens because tax is a definite source in contributing funds to the state. Basically, it is a reflection of the mutual cooperation of the community in state financing regulated by legislation. One of the factors causing low taxpayer’s compliance takes place because the public as taxpayers forget or maybe even simply ignore their obligation to pay taxes, especially personal income tax. This research is quantitative in nature, which involves testing hypotheses (explanatory). The population in this study is individual taxpayer registered at the Regional Office of the Directorate General of Taxes of the Special Region of Yogyakarta. Approximately 350,935 Individual Taxpayers at the end of 2015 were registered. The research results indicated a positive influence between the attitude of taxpayers and taxpayer’s compliance. By contrast, with respect to taxpayer compliance, the analysis on tax elimination variable shows that there is no positive influence between the elimination of tax sanctions and taxpayer compliance. The analysis on tax awareness toward taxpayer compliance indicates a positive influence between tax awareness and taxpayer compliance.
