Assess

1. To estimate the value of a property, especially for property tax purposes. For example, a county may send an assessor to one's house to assess its value and base the property tax one owes on that assessment.

2. To decide the cost of something. For example, an insurance company may assess the damage of a house fire at $120,000 and agree to pay that much toward repairs. Alternatively, the government may assess that one owes $50,000 in income tax based upon one's income the previous year.

Tax Assessment

The determination of how much a person or company owes in taxes. One usually determines one's own tax assessment by declaring one's income and capital gains from the previous year and applying the methodology the government requires to arrive at the tax liability. The government has the right to audit any tax assessment.
