Open government? The Australian government has secret talks with
The E-tax online tax return system *only* works on PCs running Windows.
This is unlikely to change in the future. I've lobbied for years to get
the E-tax system to be OS agnostic but the Australian Tax Office informs
me that it is too hard, even though many other countries seem to manage
this OK. So... I continue to submit paper forms and ignore the Tax
Office when it exhorts taxpayers to use their E-tax system.
