    A "levy" is another word for tax. See Word Reference Dictionary's entry (definition of noun #2), "a charge imposed and collected "

    edit: I suppose that it is possible for a non-governmental agency to "levy" but only a governmental entity can tax, but that would be a distinction that would be too subtle for most readers, including me.
