Purpose: This study aims to examine the effect of tax avoidance, deferred tax burden and political connections on earnings management.
Research methodology: Purposive sampling was used as the sampling technique in this study. The data was tested using multiple-linear regression.
Results: The results show that tax avoidance, deferred tax expense, and company’s political relation have no effect on earnings management practice.
Limitations: A limitation of this study is the use of very little data due to the large number of sampling criteria.
Contribution: This study can be a reference for companies to make better earnings management.
