Organizing tax affairs, developing national-religious culture, general institutionalization of tax affairs, ecological features of taxpayers, micro and macroeconomic status and learning from effective international models.
Limitations and Consequences: In this study, an attempt was made to extract the initial model using expert opinion and to postpone the quantitative test based on the positivism paradigm in order to test the model and generalize it to future studies. Therefore, the lack of questioning of taxpayers and taxpayers is the limitation of this study. In this study, tax experts and managers of the organization were used to collect information.
