(A)   The amount of taxes imposed under this chapter shall be assessed within three (3) years of the time the return upon which the tax asserted to be due was or should have been filed, whichever is later; provided, however, if a deficiency determination or assessment has been made within the prescribed time, such tax may be collected within a period of six (6) years after assessment. The running of limitations provided by this section shall be suspended for the period during which the city clerk is prohibited from making the assessment or from collecting or proceeding in court due to a petition for redetermination or an appeal therefrom, and for thirty (30) days hereafter.
   (B)   In the case of taxes due during the lifetime of a decedent, the tax shall be assessed, and any proceeding in court without assessment for the collection of such tax shall be begun, within six (6) months after written request therefor (filed after the return is made) by the executor, administrator, or other fiduciary representing the estate of such decedent unless the assessment is stayed by a petition for redetermination or any appeal therefrom.
   (C)   In the case of a false or fraudulent return with intent to evade tax, or of a failure to file a return, the tax may be assessed, or a proceeding in court for collection of such tax may be begun without assessment, at any time within three (3) years after the date of the discovery of the facts constituting the fraud.
