Tax Relief Bond

Bonds issued in anticipation of payment of taxes; that is, a municipality needs money for some purpose immediately, the expenses of which would ordinarily be taken care of by taxation, the taxes, however, are being paid slowly and not coming in fast enough to furnish funds for the purpose needed.
