I shall cite the types of brokers I am aware of:
(1) Income Tax Practitioners' main source of income is through acting as Brokers between assessees and Income Tax Authorities. They negotiate with Income Tax Authorities to get income of an assessee assessed at a mutually acceptable level and the bribe payable for the same. Usually they add some margin for themselves and recover from assessees the amount which according to them is the bribe payable to the assessees. In addition they also negotiate with the Income Tax Authorities to be given a share of the bribe called for by the I.T. Authority.
(2) A Broker for driving License or a duplicate of such a License which has been lost quotes to the applicant his own figure of charge (say, Rs3,000/- for a new License and Rs.1,000/- for a duplicate). Out of his collections he shares some amount (maybe,Rs,1,000/- for a new license, Rs.300/- or Rs.500/- for a duplicate). As a Broker he takes the applicant directly to the RTO for signing necessary papers and for the applicant's photo being snapped. By means of approach through the Broker, the License or duplicate thereof can be obtained without making multiple visits to the RTO.
(3) Some Brokers arrange to obtain Passports and Pan Cards or duplicates thereof. They charge Fees of Rs300/- to Rs.1000/-. How much of the charge they recover is shared with the staff of the offices concerned is not known; some may make a monthly payment or a case-by-case payment. But the Brokers help to get the Passport or Pan Cards without much of hassles being gone through by the applicants and within 15 to 20 days. more

The corruption prevailing in any field rots the whole in process. Strict handling of such cases may be fruitful. more  

The tax liability use to be decide at the beginning of Financial Year.
There after the sales and Profit by almost all the business house including
listed companies. The reasons are many, complex tax laws, poor
implementation of laws etc, .

The simple way to check corruption at grass root label is if we can stop
paying any bills that includes tax element in cash.

Most of the times, people engage broker for RTO work to avoid hassles of multiple visits and facing the queries of the staff. Each visit is a time consuming and it costs money (travel, parking and time)..... find (either on visit or on internet) and follow the procedure and complete the documents, and spend a little time for standing in the queue for your own work.... is the key to avoid corruption..... If the citizens are ready to face this challenge I am sure no staff / officer can dare to demand.... think over it..... We are born in a crowded country and we must learn and practice to live with the crowd..... more  
people themselves are mostly dishonest. so they naturally resort to dubious methods to escape from offence and its consequences. yatha raja thatha praja. if leaders . bureaucrats, officials in position lead as models then this malaise may be curbed. more  
Most of us approach to the brokers , due to the prolonged time taken and generally RTO people millead and misbehaves and take dis advantage of rules . The process must be easy as opening a/c in bank, target must be given to these ####@@*** more
