Paying online?

The City of Denver recently implemented a security enhancement to better protect our online payment processing system.  As a result of this enhancement, we are no longer able to accept payments from non-current browsers. If you are using an older browser version, please upgrade your browser to the most current version so that you can access the online payment service.

Changes to Watch for in 2017 W-2 Documents

A couple of changes will appear on employee W-2 documents for the 2017 tax year:

  • Box 12 is used to list codes for contributions to plans like Group Term Life Insurance, 457b (TIAA), and/or health savings accounts. Due to system constraints, this field can only accommodate four codes. Employees with more than four contribution types will receive a second W-2 with the information for those contributions. Both pages will arrive in the mail for employees receiving paper W-2s, or as a second page of the PDF for those receiving electronic W-2s.
  • Box 14 contains the Denver Occupational Privilege Tax (OPT) and is tagged with the code DNVR. In previous years, OPT appeared in Box 19 of the W-2 form.
