    the

    Is the following right? For example, do I need to include "the" in front of tax practitioners' perceptions?

    The purpose of this literature review is to obtain information on how to use the social psychology theory of reasoned action to understand and explain those factors that account for the behavioral issues involved in the act of fraudulent EITC claims from tax practitionersí perceptions.

    Re: the

    Thank you for your response. It is very helpful. In the following case, do I need to put "the" in front of "tax practioners"? In addition, do I need to put "the" in front of "tax practitioners" in general?

    The purpose of the study is to fill the gap by examining insights to the fraudulent EITC claims through the perceptions of the tax practitioners.

    Re: the

    I wouldn't put "the" before "tax practitioners" because it refers to all tax practitioners. I'll be honest - the use of articles is one of the hardest aspects of English to master.

    After nearly fifty years of teaching, I would say it is the hardest thing to master. ​I have not managed it yet.
