(2) If mailed, the semiannual assessment must be received by the office on or before January 31 and July 31 of each year. If transmitted through a wire transfer, an automated clearinghouse, or other electronic means approved by the office, the semiannual assessment must be transmitted to the office on or before January 31 and July 31 of each year. The office may levy a late payment penalty of up to $100 per day or part thereof that a semiannual assessment payment is overdue, unless it is excused for good cause.
