Obliged to make tax limited (4,5)


I believe the answer is:

duty bound

Here is my best explanation:

'obliged' is the definition.

('duty-bound' can be a synonym of 'obliged')

'tax limited' is the subsidiary indication.

'tax' becomes 'duty' (duty is a kind of tax).

'limited' becomes 'bound'.


'to make' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Guardian

(Another definition for duty bound that I've seen is "Legally obliged".)
