Florida County accepts Bitcoin as payment

Seminole County in Florida has become the United State’s first government agency to accept bitcoin as a payment method. In a press release the office of Joel Greenberg, the Seminole County Tax Collector stated: “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.”
