The Oklahoma state Senate has approved House Bill 1600, which grants tax exemptions to Bitcoin and crypto mining operations. The bill, which now awaits the governor’s signature, was passed by the Senate on May 30 with a vote of 29 to 15, following a successful passage in the House by a 68 to 20 vote. House Bill 1600 allows tax-exempt status for essential mining equipment like servers, computers, and software. This legislative effort is part of a broader move to foster a crypto-friendly environment in the state, attracting more digital asset operations. Earlier legislative actions in Oklahoma have set a precedent for favorable crypto regulations, positioning digital assets on par with traditional legal tender regarding tax treatment. The tax exemption for crypto miners is expected to boost the state’s appeal as a hub for blockchain technology and digital asset companies, contributing positively to economic growth and job creation.
