The sample was all manufacturing firms listed on Indonesia Stock Exchange and Bursa Malaysia during 2007-2011. The hypothesis was test by using four tax avoidance measurements: total book-tax difference, temporary book-tax difference, permanent book-tax difference, and abnormal book-tax difference. The results prove that family firms have positive effect on tax avoidance. Another result is Malaysia firms avoid tax more than Indonesia firms do. In Indonesia, family firms have significant effect on tax avoidance; however, in Malaysia there is no significant effect.
