In its purest meaning, a "timbre" is a seal (stamp). As vayolene writes, timbre will refer to tax.

"Timbre para facturas" translates as "seal for invoices."

In french "timbre" means "stamp"
postage stamp : timbre-poste
revenue stamp : timbre fiscal

But in spanish "timbre" is most often used for a revenue stamp and indeed "sello" for a postage stamp.

As Roberto59 writes, it also means bell.

A timbre, originally, was a dry stamp, as was a sello that litterally means seal. By extension a timbre is a stamp/seal issued by the state and/or for proof of taxation.
A stamp in the sense of a postage stamp - as the English used to call it adhesive postage stamp - is quite rare in modern Spanish. That, as naufrago writes, is "sello."

(as vayolene just posted.)

The RAE lists even more definitions. One of those is the English "timbre" that a bell also has.
