Sales and Use, Occupational Privilege, Seat Taxes
The City and County of Denver will continue to waive the 15% penalty for late payment for sales and use, occupational privilege, and facility development admissions (seat) taxes.
- Businesses must still file their April tax returns and remit the tax funds within 30 days of the due date (penalty will be waived if tax returns are filed and taxes remitted by June 15th for seat tax and June 20th for sales, use and occupational privilege taxes).
This is the third consecutive month in which the Department of Finance (DOF) has waived the 15% late penalty to provide relief to businesses. DOF will evaluate the extension of the waiver on a month-by-month basis.

Real Property Tax Relief Efforts for Residents and Businesses
Governor Jared Polis’ Executive Order #D 2020 031 authorizes county treasurers to extend the waiver of interest on late payment of property taxes through April 30, 2020. The action also allows property owners who had previously chosen to pay property taxes all at once to pay in installments.
Effective immediately, Denver will:
- Waive 100% of late payment interest through April 30, 2020 (original order was through April 20).
- Property owners who have not yet paid the first installment of property taxes may now pay their first installment on or before April 30 with interest waived. The second installment is due June 15, 2020.
- Property owners who intended to pay in full on April 30 may still do so or may now choose to pay in two installments. The first half is due April 30 and the remainder is due June 15, 2020.
