Interest in corporate tax avoidance has accelerated in recent years as a combination of political, economic, and technological factors have fueled the public’s awareness of corporate tax activities. Academic research on corporate tax avoidance has grown in step with this public interest. This paper provides a survey of that literature, with a focus on developments over the last decade. In the survey, we highlight key contributions, provide a framework for links among studies, and reference some areas where our understanding is still limited.
