The article analyzes the factors influencing tax evasion: the value of gross domestic product per capita, tax burden, corruption and openness of information on the use of budgetary funds. The correlation model includes the analysis of two groups of indicators. The first group is indicators of the individual level: education, socio-economic status, attitude to religion, gender, etc. The second group is indicators of the global or national level: GDP per capita, tax burden, the level of corruption in the country, the degree of financial transparency of public finances. The results of the study confirmed the hypothesis that law-abiding tax behavior is largely determined by the openness of information about the use of tax revenues by governments. Disclosure of information on the use of budget funds can become a powerful tool for strengthening the understanding of the legitimacy of the state tax policy, as well as act as a preventive measure to overcome existing facts of tax evasion. Increasing the transparency of public finances will make it possible to reproduce a new level of tax culture, to form an internal agreement of citizens with the fiscal policy of the state.
