On Friday, it was announced that Ohio is braced for becoming the first American state to officially accept crypto assets in tax payments.
Josh Mandel, Ohio’s State Treasurer gave the green light to the crypto world, letting businesses pay taxes utilizing Bitcoin.
So, state officials will enable businesses in Ohio to register as well as settle their tax liabilities online, while crypto payment service provider BitPay is going to process all the payments. As a result, the crypto asset will be converted into American dollars.
