GIFT TAX 157 (2) LIMIT ON AMOUNT OF CREDIT OR REFUND.- The amount of the credit or refund shall not exceed the portion of the tax paid during the three years immediately preceding the filing of the claim, or if no claim was filed, then during the three years immediately pre- ceding the allowance of the credit or refund. (c) EFFECT OF PETITION TO BOARD. -If the Commissioner has mailed to the taxpayer a notice of deficiency under section 1012 (a) and if the taxpayer files a petition with the Board of Tax Appeals within the time prescribed in such subsection, no credit or refund in respect of the tax for the calendar year in respect of which the Com- missioner has determined the deficiency shall be allowed or made and no suit by the taxpayer for the recovery of any part of such tax shall be instituted in any court except- (1) As to overpayments determined by a decision of the Board which has become final; and (2) As to any amount collected in excess of an amount computed in accordance with the decision of the Board which has become final; and (3) As to any amount collected after the period of limitation upon the beginning of distraint or a proceeding in court for col- lection has expired; but in any such claim for credit or refund or in any such suit for refund, the decision of the Board which has become final, as to whether such period has expired before the notice of deficiency was mailed, shall be conclusive. (d) OVERPAYMENT FOUND B BOARD.- If the Board finds that there is no deficiency and further finds that the taxpayer has made an over- payment of tax in respect of the taxable year in respect of which the Commissioner determined the deficiency, the Board shall have juris- diction to determine the amount of such overpayment, and such amount shall, when the decision of the Board has become final, be credited or refunded to the taxpayer. No such credit or refund shall be made of any portion of the tax unless the Board determines as part of its decision that such portion was paid within three years before the filing of the claim or the filing of the petition, whichever is earlier, or that such portion was paid after the mailing of the notice of deficiency.
