This study aims to examine the role of government audit in controlling corruption and examine their impact on government performance and tax revenue.

Method of analysis used is structural equation modeling with AMOS software. The data analysis using secondary data with 108 observations from 34 provincial governments in Indonesia. The results found evidence that audit detection has significant affect on corruption. This study also found that the level of corruption and government performance have significant affect on tax revenue. However, this finding has no evidence of effect between post-audit rectification and corruption. The results of this study show implications that government must be able to strengthen the auditor's role in detecting fraud and exposing corruption activities.
