Self-Assessment

In taxation, any system that allows the individual taxpayer to determine how much he/she owes in taxes. In a self-assessment, the taxpayer declares his/her income, makes deductions and credits, and arrives at the amount owed. A self-assessment is subject to review (and perhaps an audit) by the tax authorities.
