Abstract: Tax administration constantly monitors taxpayers through tax control to meet the legal obligations of the tax field. The main purpose of this function is to advise taxpayers and maintain operational control through continuous monitoring. Motivated by the importance of tax control, this paper aims to provide an empirical contribution to the analysis of tax control’s effects on the level of tax revenues. The database obtained in the analysis is both quantitative and qualitative according to the evidence of direct operational controls performed on businesses. The variables analysed are total tax revenues from value added tax (VAT), profit tax, personal income tax (PIT), withholding tax, etc.; tax control variables and macroeconomic variables. The methodology used in this paper is based on linear models with many variables as well as statistical tests to find the potential levels and equilibrium, elasticity and structural estimation of tax revenues. The findings of this paper provide a focused contribution on current issues for tax control policymakers, as well as other public entities, and they make an academic contribution to the legal and economic interpretation of the importance of tax control.
