Bio/Research

Jonathan Farrar joined the Ted Rogers School of Finance and Accounting in 2011 after earning his PhD in business administration from York University. He is a Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA), and has practiced tax at an international accounting firm.

Farrar enjoys teaching tax and interacting with students. He also enjoys researching the behavioural aspects of taxpayer decision-making, which he hopes will influence future tax policies.

One issue Farrar explores is how perceptions of fairness influence compliance. He looks at whether or not people think they are taxed fairly, treated fairly by the Canada Revenue Agency, and whether the agency’s processes are fair, thereby trying to tease apart whether perceived fairness in one area balances or compensates for unfairness in another.

He is also examining the CRA’s voluntary disclosure program to determine what motivates people to own up to their “mistakes” before they are caught. He is also undertaking research on factors that influence tax whistleblowing decisions.
