Paying online with earlier browser versions?

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 internet traffic from non-current browsers that are not using up-to-date encryption protocols.  If you are using an older version of your browser, please upgrade your browser to the most current version so that you can access the online payment service.

Note*: If you are an internal city customer, please contact the help desk for upgrade assistance.

Is your payment larger than a typical transaction? Notify your bank.

If you are experiencing trouble when making a payment with a credit or debit card you may need to notify your bank of a higher than normal payment amount. We suggest calling the bank prior to any payment attempts to ensure that your payment will not be rejected.

Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock eliminated convenience fees in 2014 for paying city taxes, fees, bills and fines with a credit or debit card. Paying online is faster, more convenient, saves postage and helps the environment through reduced paper and waste costs. And now it’s cheaper too.

Taxpayers often wish to prepay their property tax before the end of the year.  The City and County of Denver does not know the amount of taxes due for a parcel until the mill levy is approved at the end of December.  If you'd like to pay prior to this time, we recommend paying the tax amount from last year.  You will be responsible for paying the difference once the mill levy is approved or you will receive a refund if you pay too much.
