Toronto-based Crytpo currency exchange, Coinberry’s co-founder, Evan Kuhn, expressed that accepting BTC (Bitcoin) for taxes is more effective than utilizing bank card payments. A recent report from real estate news outlet Mansion Global, Kuhn said his organization takes much lower charges than the ones that card companies impose on their customers, by adding:
“A credit card company charges a 3% fee,” he said. “Our fee is .5%, so that’s a lot more beneficial for the municipalities.”
Coinberry provides simple and faster ways to purchase and sell cryptocurrencies in the Canadian market. Moreover, Coinberry functions as an intermediary as the local municipalities are not approved to hold or acknowledge cryptocurrencies because of their unpredictability. Coinberry accepts the digital currency, instantly transmits it as Canadian dollars, and after that moves the funds to the municipalities.
Will Torontonians pay property taxes using #Bitcoin? 🍁
"It doesn’t cost homeowners to use the service, and it costs the municipalities far less in processing fees" – Evan Kuhn, Co-Founder, Coinberry

Furthermore, as the municipalities are not permitted to hold or accept the cryptocurrencies because of their unpredictability, Coinberry processes the property tax payments as indicated by Evan Kuhn. Besides, when a resident makes a payment through Coinberry, the organization promptly changes over it to Canadian dollars and pays the municipality, stated Mr. Kuhn.
Earlier in July, Richmond Hill, a city close to Toronto, started accepting Bitcoin for property tax, which was less than six months after Innisfil, introduced a similar project on an experimental basis. Additionally, in July, Richmond Hill turned into Ontario’s second town to support Bitcoin as a payment choice for property taxes, as indicated by city authorities.
As one of the early adopters of the technology, Richmond Hill and Innisfil are “setting the rails” for the future, Mr. Kuhn stated. More individuals are using cryptocurrency, and he anticipates that the number should keep growing. Organizations, particularly worldwide tech firms, are currently paying their workers in cryptocurrencies, he opined.
Regardless, In the United States, the state of Ohio turned out to be the first to approve organizations to pay taxes utilizing Bitcoin. Moreover, as set up by the state treasury office, organizations are permitted to pay 23 distinctive taxes using the cryptocurrencies through an online platform.
