Revenues

Revenues are stamps representing the prepayment or payment of various taxes.  Revenues are affixed to official documents and to merchandise.  Some stamps, including many issues of the British Commonwealth, are inscribed “Postage and Revenue” and were available for either use.  Such issues are usually worth less fiscally canceled than postally used.  In some cases, revenues have been used provisionally as postage stamps.
