For the first time, the US state of Colorado allows the payment of taxes in Bitcoin and Co. There is one small catch.
Colorado is the first U.S. state to accept crypto payments to settle tax levies. This was reported by Axios Denver news agency on September 20.
According to the report, Governor Jared Polis announced the new inclusion of Bitcoin and Co. during Denver Start-up Week.
Citizens will henceforth be able to use cryptocurrencies for tax payments to the tax office, in addition to debit and credit cards, direct bank transfers or e-checks, as listed on its website.
The catch is that users can only make the crypto payments through their Paypal accounts. The company introduced crypto integration in the U.S. in October 2020.
Those who use this payment method must thus pay a service fee of one US dollar plus 1.83 percent of the total amount, according to the tax office.
In addition, the entire transfer amount must be made in a cryptocurrency. Partial payments from multiple coins or tokens are not possible.
