In the tax system of our country, the tax culture of self-declaration indicates that the need to promote a culture of honest expression and voluntary compliance can reduce the cost of tax collection and accelerate the financing of government needs and thus this is very important for policymakers, decision-makers and managers in planning.
The existence of a leading tax culture contributes significantly to the economic development of that country. On the other hand, managers can better manage and develop the tax culture by raising awareness and studying the factors involved in promoting the society's tax culture.
