R U up? Haz $ 4 Uncle Sam? [USGAO to host online chat about taxes & Bitcoin]

More signs that it’s 2013 and we’re all into the 21st century: Tomorrow at 2 PM ET, the United States Government Accountability Office will answer online questions about a decentralized electronic currency during a livestreamed event. 

Yes, the USGAO is talking to the Internet about Bitcoin.

And yes, the agency tweeted about it.

Using social media to convene and amplify a discussion about a difficult, timely topic is a terrific use of the medium and the historic moment. Here’s hoping that USGAO officials get good questions and give frank, clear answers.

You can read more about Bitcoin and taxes at National Journal and follow along at #AskGAOLive on Twitter tomorrow.
