The often overlooked aspect of tax administration is the immense effort applied to build a partnership with the community to facilitate and improve voluntary compliance. Teachers, as one of informal leader in society, is such community. Primary data collected by survey method to high school teachers in Bogor and Jakarta in 2013 and 2015 respectively. This study finds that teachers have high willingness to participate in promote tax. Most of the them will transfer their tax knowledge and skill to their students and society.

The result of present study contributes to fields concerned with building tax people and improving tax morale.
