|Abstract: ||本研究探討租稅規避與企業聲望間之關係。參考Gallemore, Maydew, and Thornock (2014) 依據不同的公司利害關係人形成之觀點，對企業聲望做廣泛性之定義。並根據定義選取多個企業聲望代理變數進行實證分析。觀察公司若因為從事租稅規避之行為而被大眾媒體報導後，企業聲望之變化。
This study discusses the association between tax avoidance and corporate reputation. Follow Gallemore, Maydew, and Thornock (2014), using the perceptions formed by different corporate stakeholders to make a broad definition of corporate reputation. Then, select multiple proxies of corporate reputation according to the definition to do my empirical analysis. And observe whether reputation of the corporations change if they were reported by public media because of tax avoidance.
This study collects media reports in Taiwan from 2007 to 2016 and includes financial data of Taiwanese companies from 2002 to 2016. Use differences-in-differences methodology and choose control group by matching to do the empirical research. For the proxies of corporate reputation, there are three main results in this study. First, after reported by media because of tax avoidance, the sales growth of corporation significant declines. It represents that the corporate reputation will falls after the report of tax avoidance. Second, the advertisement growth significant rises after the report, means that corporations will consider the potential damage of reputation caused by reports and will take action to protect it. The last, however, the other proxies of corporate reputation I analyzed are not significant in this study, including stock return, marketing expenditure and reputation in magazine. As a results, this study does not find enough evidence to prove that corporations will face reputation loss after report of tax avoidance.
