    Sec. 19. As to any claim for credit or refund filed with the Department on or after each January 1 and July 1, no amount of tax or penalty or interest erroneously paid (either in total or partial liquidation of a tax or penalty or interest under this Act) more than 3 years prior to such January 1 and July 1, respectively, shall be credited or refunded, except that if both the Department and taxpayer have agreed to an extension of time to issue a notice of tax liability as provided in Section 4 of the Retailers' Occupation Tax Act, such claim may be filed at any time prior to the expiration of the period agreed upon. No claim shall be allowed for any amount paid to the Department, whether paid voluntarily or involuntarily, if paid in total or partial liquidation of an assessment which had become final before the claim for credit or refund to recover the amount so paid is filed with the Department, or if paid in total or partial liquidation of a judgment or order of court.
