This paper presents a view over the way in which governments adapt to the changes in the social and economic environment related to the digitalization of various aspects of the society as well as trends in policy making and public opinion that challenge traditional governing methods. Three distinct e-governance infrastructure are tackled: Government to Client, Government to Businesses and Government to Government solutions that can use tools and technologies, each with financial implications and relevance from a tax policy stand point. The most significant functional, technical operational implications are briefly explored then the paper then analyses the development of possible E-governance applications for each function of the government in the economy. All such developments manifest both deterrent forces and incentives, but a well-executed system has all prerequisites for good e-governance.
