Utah Recognizes Goldbacks as Currency

March 25th, 2022 - Salt Lake City, Utah

The State of Utah recognized the Goldback as a legitimate circulating currency in House Bill 268.  House Representitive Brady Brammer introduced the bill.  Mr. Brammer lives in the Alpine Utah district, the same district that Goldback Inc is headquarted in.  The State House and Senate overwhelmingly passed the bill, before it was signed by Governor Spencer Cox.

The bill's passage clarifies and reaffirms that Goldbacks are exempt from State Taxes.  This bill is the first in any State to acknowledge Goldbacks specifically since 2019.
