We also use other proxy of earnings management, such as Total Accruals and the existence of Tax Assessment Letter from Tax Officials. Using the 10 years’ data from 1999-2008, we find that factors affecting boox tax gap in Indonesia is total accrual and size. This shows that menagement discretion that reflected in total accruals will affect the level of company’s book tax gap, along with the sizeof the company. This means the bigger the size of a companyin Indonesia, the better the monitoring conducted that lead to lower book tax gap. this finding will give insight to accounting researchers towards the earnings management practice and the use of book tax gap in developing country.
