I have a house in Spain and have recieved a bill for annual charges. One of the charges says - "DERRAMA 28/01/2008" and the only translation I can find for derrama is " spills". Can anybody explain what the word means in this context '
f. Repartimiento de un gasto eventual, y más señaladamente de una contribución.
f. Contribución temporal o extraordinaria.
1. Assessment of a tax, duty, or impost. (f)
