How far does a $100K salary go in Denver? Further than Portland or Seattle, but not by much

COLORADO, USA — If you earn a $100,000 salary, then you’re well ahead of the median worker in the U.S. But if you live in Denver, it’s harder to make that money go as far as in other major U.S. cities.

A new report from ranks the 50 most populous cities in the U.S. by how much money would be left from a $100,000 salary after subtracting necessary expenses such as taxes, groceries, rent, utilities, healthcare and driving costs.

Denver ranks in the bottom 15, according to the report.

But in San Francisco, $100,000 doesn’t go far enough. There, residents end up with a deficit of more than $2,000 after taxes and expenses, according to the GOBankingRates report.
