(a) An amount equal to five percent (5%) of the assessment installment amount not paid on or before the due date, plus five percent (5%) of the portion thereof remaining unpaid on the last day of each month thereafter; or
(b) An amount equal to one hundred percent (100%) of the assessment installment amount not paid on or before the due date.
(3) For purposes of subsection (2) of this section, payments shall be credited first to unpaid installment amounts rather than to penalty or interest amounts, beginning with the most delinquent installment.
