Here is my best explanation:

'a tax right-off' is the definition.

I can't tell whether this definition defines the answer.

'gloss over disappearing grove' is the subsidiary indication.

'loss' is hidden in amongst the letters.

However, I am uncertain how the hidden word is indicated.

'it's' is the link.
