Here is my best explanation:

'recipient' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'tax at the end of june' is the wordplay.
'tax' becomes 'paye' (PAYE is an example).
'at the end of' indicates one should take the final letters.
The last letter of 'june' is 'e'.
'paye'+'e'='PAYEE'

'of' is the link.
