Tax control is an essential mechanism of tax administration; it is implemented through the system of forms and methods. The article addresses the problem of preventing tax offenses by enterprises. Objectives The objectives of the study include the analysis of tax audit effectiveness, assessment of the impact of macroeconomic indicators of control activities performed by tax authorities of the Perm Krai on the volume of tax revenues from the enterprises, and substantiation of the importance of tax offense prevention. Methods The paper employs a combination of general scientific methods of knowledge and certain economic methods, i.e. analysis and synthesis, statistical analysis, econometric methods, classification, modeling, and scientific abstraction. Results We performed a complex assessment of control activities during tax audits in the Perm Krai. The paper proves the importance of preventive measures in the field of tax control for enterprises.
