  • § 7817. Determination of tax on failure to file return

    (a) When the Commissioner discovers, by examination of the records of the taxpayer as provided in section 7816 of this title or otherwise, that a person required to file a return under this subchapter has filed an incorrect or insufficient return, the Commissioner may, at any time within three years after the date the return was due, determine the correct amount of tax and shall give notice to the taxpayer of the amount of any deficiency in such tax, together with penalty and interest as hereinafter provided. If no return has been filed as provided by law, the tax may be assessed at any time. When, before the expiration of the period prescribed herein for assessment of an additional tax, a taxpayer has consented in writing that the period be extended, the amount of the additional tax due may be determined at any time within the extended period. The period so extended may be further extended by subsequent consents in writing made before the expiration of the extended period.

    (b) A determination by the Commissioner in accordance with subsection (a) of this section shall fix the tax, unless the person against whom it is assessed shall, within 60 days after receiving the notice of such determination, apply to the Commissioner for a hearing as is herein provided. The decision of the Commissioner after the hearing may be reviewed as provided in this chapter. (Added 1959, No. 231, § 7; amended 1971, No. 73, § 33, eff. April 16, 1971; 1989, No. 222 (Adj.
