Pay Taxes with Crypto

First U.S. Government Agency to Accept Cryptocurrency

SANFORD, Fla, May 14, 2018 – Seminole County Tax Collector Joel M. Greenberg, today announced his office will begin accepting Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash for payment for various services starting this summer. For years, paying taxes by credit or debit card meant using a third-party processor with heavy fees. The blockchain allows the Seminole County Tax Collector to eliminate much of those heavy fees while improving payment accuracy, transparency, and efficiency which ultimately benefits Seminole County tax payers. These services include vehicle tag and title fees, property tax, and driver license and ID card fees

“We live in a world where technology has made access to services on demand, with same-day delivery and the expectation of highly efficient customer service and we should expect the same from our government,” Greenberg said. “The aim of my tenure in office is to make our customer experience faster, smarter, and more efficient, and to bring government services from the 18th century into the 21st century and one way is the addition of cryptocurrency to our payment options.”

“This will be an educational process for my county and constituents,” Greenberg told ETHNews. “I’m 33, so I am more comfortable with this technology than most, but as with the internet in the ’90s, introducing this technology publicly will help to make more of my constituents comfortable with it. I’m not afraid of cryptocurrency or new currencies; it’s my obligation to serve my citizens by offering as many options as possible for my constituents to pay their bills.”
