When is the deadline for filing an abatement?

Abatement applications must be received by the Assessor's office within three years after the excise is due, or one year after the excise is paid, whichever is later.  Suppose an excise tax bill was due on March 1, 2020.  The abatement deadline would be March 1, 2023, OR one year after the payment of the bill, whichever is later.
