Abstract: Many conversations about business ethics involve the question of if something is legal , is it ethical? This research study examines participants' personal ethical beliefs about tax havens , tax avoidance , tax evasion. It also compares how participants react to media biases and if the factors presented affect the participant's ethical views of tax decisions. Participants believe that tax avoidance , while legal , is slightly unethical. Biases in media sources can also affect a participant's viewpoint of a company or person. Companies and individuals should use this evidence in determining the harm of their reputation if there were to be a scandal involving tax avoidance strategies.
