If no return is filed within the time or manner provided by the controlling tax ordinance and prior to the town issuing a notice of tax delinquency or notice of tax liability, then a failure to file penalty shall be assessed equal to twenty five percent (25%) of the total tax due for the applicable reporting period for which the return was required to be filed.
