TITLE 54 - TAXATION
54:32B-27 - Notice and limitations of time
27. Notice and limitations of time. (a) Any notice authorized or required under the provisions of this act may be given by mailing the same to the person for whom it is intended in a postpaid envelope addressed to such person at the address given in the last return filed by him pursuant to the provisions of this act or in any application made by him or, if no return has been filed or application made, then to such address as may be obtainable. The mailing of such notice shall be presumptive evidence of the receipt of the same by the person to whom addressed. Any period of time which is determined according to the provisions of this act by the giving of notice shall commence to run from the date of mailing of such notice.
(b) The provisions of law relative to limitations of time for the enforcement of a civil remedy shall not apply to any proceeding or action taken by the State or the director to levy, appraise, assess, determine or enforce the collection of any tax or penalty provided by this act. However, except in the case of a willfully false or fraudulent return with intent to evade the tax, no assessment of additional tax shall be made after the expiration of more than four years from the date of the filing of a return; provided, however, that where no return has been filed as provided by law the tax may be assessed at any time.
(c) Where, before the expiration of the period prescribed herein for the assessment of an additional tax, a taxpayer has consented in writing that such period be extended the amount of such additional tax due may be determined at any time within such extended period. The period so extended may be further extended by subsequent consents in writing made before the expiration of the extended period. If a taxpayer has consented in writing to the extension of the period for assessment, the period for filing an application for credit or refund pursuant to section 20 shall not expire prior to six months after the expiration of the period within which an assessment may be made pursuant to the consent to extend the time for assessment of additional tax.
