Miserable public isolation

Reading OECD "Forum on tax administration:Taxpayer services sub-group"   Survey Report (March 2010).

"Why citizens don' use revenue bodies'/governments' e-service" 

Despite all the success stories we have seen when:

- the public sector realises that it is not the only service citizens use - and in fact one of the most infrequently used and then

- allows and encourages citizens to use the so frequently used familiar and secure e-banking log-in-id also in the public sector (banks can provide it also to those who do not use e-banking or have accounts)

- thus achieve a order-of-magnitude faster take-up

- get high citizen satisfaction

- save very substantial amounts of tax payers money

- avoid humiliation with failed smart card schemes

this is not picked up in the report. Why not? How long will tax payers allow this miserable isolation to continue?
