The National Assembly in France has recently shot down proposals to ease up the pressure on tax regulations in the crypto space.
As reported by Bitcoin.fr, there recently existed a series of proposals to present a friendlier environment to cryptocurrency firms in France, none of which were able to pass the lower house of the nation’s legislature.
The report listed several proposed amendments to the French tax code, many of which hardly seem like radical ideas. For example, Amendment 399 was apparently intended to clarify distinctions between occasional usage of crypto assets with routine transactions, without any reference to trying to take advantage of either classification. A similar amendment to defer payment of capital gains taxes until crypto assets were converted into fiat also failed.
