A motion to contest a claim for court costs submitted by a prevailing party in a lawsuit. it is called a “motion to tax costs” and asks the judge to deny or reduce claimed costs. example: a winning party claims a right to have his/her attorneys’ fees and telephone bills paid by the loser, even though they are not allowable as costs under state law or the contract which was the subject of the suit. so the loser makes a “motion to tax costs” to avoid paying these charges.
