Abstract

This research aims to examine the effect of psychology factors toward voluntary tax compliance on personal taxpayers who have a business (MSME) in Malang Raya. Kirchler, Hoelzl, & Wahl (2008) define voluntary tax compliance as the obedience based on the feeling of trust towards the tax authority. This feeling of trust towards tax authority can be created from the procedural justice obtained and felt by the taxpayers. Tax knowledge of taxpayers is also expected to strengthen the effect of perception of procedural justice towards voluntary tax compliance and the trust towards the tax authority. The researcher employed samples of personal taxpayers who have a business (MSME) in Malang Raya through a convenience sampling method. The samples of this research were 405 respondents and were analyzed by using the SEM-PLS method with WarpPLS 6.0. The research results show that procedural justice perception affects the trust towards the authority and voluntary tax compliance, the trust towards the authority also mediates the effect of procedural justice perception towards voluntary tax compliance, but tax knowledge is not proven of strengthening procedural justice perception towards the trust towards the authority and voluntary tax compliance. The result indicates that to increase tax compliance the authority must make sure the fair procedure according to taxpayers. The fair procedure will establish trust in the authority and make taxpayers easier to comply. Tax knowledge doesn’t make the effect stronger because taxpayers only judge to comply according to the easy and simple procedure of tax system
