Impact of Enforcement on Taxpayer Compliance
  • In a report published by Dr. Jeffrey Dubin,
    California Institute of Technology, in July 2007,
    he discusses . . .
  • the impact on compliance can be experienced
    whenever publicity is received. Media coverage
    acts as a form of indirect contact with the
    general public and provides the greatest amount
    of exposure for CI activities. Attention from
    the media would seem to be the most likely forum
    through which taxpayers become aware of the
    likelihood that their crimes will be detected.
  • Successfully prosecuted and sentenced cases that
    receive some media attention would appear to be
    most relevant to the question raised above
