Economic Literacy: "Abatement"

Abatement is a reduction in the level of taxation faced by an individual or company.

Examples of an abatement include a tax decrease, a reduction in penalties or a rebate. 

If an individual or business overpays its taxes or receives a tax bill that is too high, it can request an abatement from the tax authorities.
