Bus/Financial - Law: Taxation & Customs / Terms that appear in software for ATMs.
Spanish term or phrase: contribuciones
This is also for colleagues knowledgeable in Chilean Spanish. "Contribuciones" here normally means the tax you pay every 4 mos. on a house or land parcel. Would it be "real estate taxes"?

I don't have any context apart from this:

"La Tesorería de la República posee tres transacciones (contribuciones, impuestos fiscales y convenios)".

Meaning the software will allow bank customers to pay these taxes through an ATM.

My problem is it's a vague term already, plus it's beside (i.e., differentiated from) "impuestos fiscales." Which is my next question.

Thanks!
