IRS, FTB to collect email addresses of people and provide basic online services

Wrote to IRS, FTB:
Dear Sir, please collect email addresses of people in form 1040 or form 540, so that when you receive such tax forms, you can provide basic confirmation , along lines of :
a) tax forms are received,
b) tax balance due, or refund status


Currently, there is very little in the way of online services the IRS/FTB etc offer, to folks who have to file by paper. This year, I had to spend DAYS to track my paper returns, since I did not get any confirmation from IRS/FTB on whether the tax forms are received and if there is any balance due on my account, etc.
