So do I have to pay taxes for the taxes I just paid on my Bitcoin?



If you converted Bitcoin to cash to pay your taxes (which is how Ohio's service actually works) and that resulted in a capital gain (you originally paid less for that Bitcoin than it's worth today), then you'd need to pay taxes on that capital gain.

This is no different than selling any other asset (stocks, a house, etc.) to get cash to pay your taxes.
