Abstract

This research aims to examine the influence of financial distress and the independence of boards of commissioners on tax aggressiveness. The study uses 97 manufacture firms listed on the Indonesia Stock Exchange from 2010 to 2013. Using a regression method, the findings show that the financial distress and independence of boards of commissioners have no significant influence on tax aggressiveness. High corporate governance scores do not guarantee a good practice. This research also proves that financial distress has no moderating effect on the association between commissioner independence and tax aggressiveness, since the independence of boards of commissioners does not have a significant effect on tax aggressiveness.
