Category A tax payers were the target population of this study. A sample of 377 individual Category A tax payers were randomly taken from selected cities.

Primary data were collected through questionnaire and secondary data were collected from reports and manuals of Ethiopian Revenue and Customs Authority (ERCA) branches. Descriptive statistics such as tables and percentages have been used for data analysis. The result of this study revealed that tax awareness was the major problem for voluntary tax compliance attitude and most tax payers viewed the current tax rate and penalty rate is high and they also believed that existing tax system is unfair.
