Sec. 3 . (a) If at any time the department finds that a person owing taxes intends to quickly leave the state, remove his property from the state, conceal his property in the state, or do any other act that would jeopardize the collection of those taxes, the department may declare the person's tax period at an end, may immediately make an assessment for the taxes owing, and may demand immediate payment of the amount due, without providing the notice required in IC 6-8.1-8-2 .
(b) If the department has sent a notice of proposed assessment under section 1 of this chapter to a taxpayer by United States mail and the notice is returned to the department because the taxpayer has moved and the department is unable to determine the taxpayer's new address, the department may:
(1) declare the person's tax period at an end;
(2) immediately make an assessment for the taxes owing; and
(3) demand immediate payment of the amount due;
without providing the notice required in IC 6-8.1-8-2 .
(c) If the payment is not made immediately, the department may issue or request the state police department to serve a jeopardy tax warrant against the person and, either without or with the assistance of the sheriffs of any counties in the state, may levy on and sell the person's property which is located in those counties. In place of the levy and sale procedure, the department may accept from the person a bond for the payment of the taxes, if the bond is in an amount at least equal to the amount of the total liability and if the bond is through a surety acceptable to the department.
