Included in the list is that the taxpayer remitted all the sales and use taxes it collected during the period, had not been directed by the Department in a prior audit to collect sales and use taxes in the circumstance that is the basis of the assessment as reflected in the written audit comments in the prior audit, and the taxpayer has not received other specific written guidance from the Department advising the taxpayer to collect sales and use taxes that are the bases of the assessments for which the taxpayer seeks reduction. Provides procedures that the taxpayer must meet for requesting the reduction. Applies to the following for a tax period ending prior to January 1, 2021: a proposed assessment or portion of a proposed assessment; an assessment that becomes collectible under GS 105-241.22; a pending request for review case; and a pending contested case hearing at the Office of Administrative Hearings. Excludes a refund for sales or use taxes that were originally collected and remitted to the Department.

Changes short title and long title to include Grace for CCRC.
