CESS (a shortened form of " assess "; the spelling is due to a mistaken connexion with " census "), a tax; a term formerly more particularly applied to local taxation, in which sense it still is used in Ireland; otherwise it has been superseded by " rate." In India it is applied, with the qualifying word prefixed, to any taxation, such as " irrigation-cess " and the like, and in Scotland to the land-tax.
