Tax evasion and tax avoidance and is part of tax planning which aims to reduce the amount of tax payments. As an illegal act, it is clear that tax evasion violates the law so that the practice is not allowed. The tax evasion action is cheating, because taxpayers try to manipulate transactions so that costs arise that reduce income and even cause losses. Tax evasion is detrimental to the state, because the tax value paid by taxpayers is not the value it should be. It could even be that taxpayers are free from tax burden if their income is minus or experiences a loss. The purpose of the study is to find out how tax knowledge, tax service quality, tax audit and use of tax sanctions affect tax evasion, using a basic approach to the theory of attribution. The sample of the study consists of 114 respondents. The materiality and consistency of all factors selected for analysis were verified by testing and using the Cronbach's alpha. According to the results of the study, all factors (knowledge of tax legislation, quality of tax services, tax audit and use of tax sanctions) have a positive and significant impact on the level of tax evasion, i.e. lead to a reduction in such actions by taxpayers. Future research on this topic can be developed by adding research variables; such as the modernization of the tax administration system, transparency of tax spending, audit risk, taxpayer awareness, tax justice, tax regulations, and other variables that may affect tax evasion (tax evasion). In addition the research sample can also expand by increasing the number of respondents in order to represent the population accurately and more deeply and using different research methods such as purposive sampling method and direct interviews with taxpayers and tax officials to obtain deeper data.
