According to the information view, the main function of accounting is to provide information and thus reduce uncertainty. So, the high internal information environment quality (IIEQ) reduces the corporate declared tax disagreement by tax auditors due to facilitating tax planning coordination between different departments of the company and providing documents to tax authorities. The purpose of this study is to investigate the impact of IIEQ on tax risk reduction in listed companies in Tehran Stock Exchange (TSE) by applying data collected from 136 companies during the years 2009 to 2015. For this purpose, the difference between the corporate declared and certain tax due to the uncertainty about the confirmation of the declared tax is taken as a tax risk. The results show that environmental uncertainty increases tax risk. Moreover, income quality, income forecasting accuracy, and financial reporting quality and transparency reduce tax risk. Corporate governance quality, is also effective for tax risk reduction. These findings highlight the importance of environmental conditions, measurement process, financial reporting and internal monitoring for tax risk reduction. On the other hand, based on the research findings, companies with lower tax rates have higher tax risks; but conservatism and asset returns don’t make sense for tax risk. Moreover, tax risk is higher in larger companies, and financial leverage, also, increases tax risk. The findings provide new evidence of the IIEQ impact on the corporate tax planning. These findings can be useful in assessing corporate tax risk based on its IIEQ.
