This section does not apply when a taxpayer receives a proposed assessment of deficiency. Rather, the exclusive remedy to contest an income tax deficiency assessment is the filing of a written protest with the Tax Commissioner within 90 days of the date of the mailing of the proposed assessment of a deficiency pursuant to sections 77-27,127 and 77-27,128. If a timely protest is not filed by the taxpayer, the proposed assessment becomes final. Sack v. State, 259 Neb. 463, 610 N.W.2d 385 (2000).
