What does "exhausted" mean in this sentense? In the case of a judicial challenge to the tax liability, teh liability is not finally determined until all judicial appeal rights have been exhausted.

exhausted = consumed, used up, completed. Here there may be several courts, like Supreme Court, and each case may have a right of appeal. Suppose there are three available appeals. Once the first second and third appeal have been denied, the second rights of appeal have been exhausted.
