Reply to "On which/for which/ in which"

1) in the C example above, can we use within instead? so This document explains our practice of limiting the time within which we will raise an original income tax assessment for a trustee.

With periods of time, "in" and "within" are usually interchangeable to mean that the period in question should not be exceeded.

2) What about for which, have I applied correctly in the sentence below.

I bought an expensive bag for which it is used for attending a VIP meeting?

No, the sentence above does not work. Perhaps you wanted to say:

- I bought an expensive bag for attending a VIP meeting.

This is an example where "for which" can be used:

- I bought an expensive bag for which I paid a fortune (I paid a fortune for the bag).

3) Can you give a good example the use of by which? this seems to be common as well.

- Please tell me the deadline by which I have to submit the documents.
