The online filing of taxes is
one of the eGovernment functions targeted by the eEurope 2002 directive.
Preference for online tax filing varies by country. Except for Greece,
among the EU Member States, preference tends to correlate with reported
usage. By contrast, in the NAS countries this does not hold. The relatively
high preferences for using this online service in the NAS countries (and
in Greece) can be explained by the fact that only early adopters of Internet
are surveyed and they may have a more positive attitude towards Internet
issues. However, (awareness of) availability and reported usage are very
limited in these countries.
