Summary/Abstract: Map of the tax gap in corporate income tax In highly developed countries, the programs of measuring tax gap have been successfully implemented since the seventies of XX century. In the case of corporate income tax, estimation of the amount and determining the structure of the tax gap in CIT is much more complex matter than in the case of VAT. The Polish Ministry of Finance is claimed to have its own calculations in this respect, however they have not been published so far. Available foreign literature on estimating tax losses of the state budget due to the tax gap concerns only selected (specific) areas of the tax gap. In addition, the possibilities of its application in the specific conditions of the Polish tax system are limited. The publication attempts to create a map of the tax gap for CIT purposes.
