Abstract: Tax non-compliance is an area of concern for all government and tax authorities, and it will continue to be an important issue that must be addressed. Regardless of time and place, the main issue faced by all tax authorities is that it has never been easy to persuade all taxpayers to comply with the regulations of a tax system. The objective of this study is to examine the influence of tax education on the compliance attitude of tax payers. To achieve this objective, a quantitative research approach is used. Both experimental and survey methods of data collection are used in this study. As this study’s objective is to explore how provision of tax education influences tax compliance attitude of tax payers, experimental data was collected through questionnaire twice. One at the beginning before respondents attend tax course and second at the completion of the experiment i.e. after attending the tax course. Survey data are collected using questionnaire distributed to real taxpayers. The results indicated that tax compliance is influenced by tax education. The results of this study can inform policymakers on the extent to which tax knowledge is important in voluntary compliance
