A: "Depending upon tax type, the statute of limitations begins running when a tax return is filed, or on the due date of the return. The statute of limitations is typically 36 months from that date as specified in the various tax laws.

If a tax return is filed prior to the due date of the return, then the return is considered to have been filed on the due date for purposes of the statute of limitations. If a return is not filed, the statute of limitations does not begin running until an assessment is made for that tax period. The statute of limitations can also be extended beyond the normal time frame if a false or fraudulent return is filed with intent to evade tax."
