The hypothesis was tested using binary logistic regression. The first hypothesis was used to examine the influence of profitability to income smoothing. The second hypothesis was used to examine the influence of size of the company to income smoothing. The third hypothesis was used to examine the influence of financial leverage to income smoothing. The fourth hypothesis was used to examine the influence of dividend payout ratios to income smoothing. The result of this study showed that some of the listed companies at Indonesian Stock Exchange were committed to income smoothing practice.
