No, if you are in a country where re-downloading music is possible (it's not available in all countries), then as long as the tracks remain in the store (content providers occasionally remove items) then you can re-download them as many times as you like.
But you should also keep and maintain your own backup of all your purchases, just in case they are removed from the store.

Sorry, I wasn't clear. I was able to download previously purchased music on my iMAC, but I'm not able to download the same music on my Macbook Air (I selected Purchased/Not On In This Compurter) -- I get an warning message indicating the I can only download previsouly purchased music every 90 days. I'm using the same iTUNES account and it is shared library with my iMAC.

Has a different iTunes account been used on that Mac to download past purchases, automatic downloads or iTunes match ?

I don't think so..
FYI... This issue is on the Macbook Air, which is newer. The Macbook Air is Authorized and home sharing is working, but will not allow auto-download, etc.. The 90 day message is popping up.

I think what the message is saying is that if you download past purchases for that account then you will be tying the Mac to that account for 90 days - I was thinking that it was saying that it's already associated with an account, not that you are about to associate it. If you don't want that to happen (which if it's your only account then it shouldn't be an issue), then you should be able to copy the content from your other Mac to it via, for example, home sharing : copying content between computers.
