In-Person Taxpayer Services Suspended!

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 return and remit the tax funds within 30 days of the due date (penalty will be waived if April 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. Taxes are collected on behalf of the consumer and remitted to the city by businesses and should not be used to supplement business expenses. DOF will evaluate extension of the waiver on a month-by-month basis.
