If a check or money order is presented to the department in payment of any amount due, and is not paid when presented to the payor, there shall be paid as a penalty by the person who tendered the check or money order, upon notice and demand by the commissioner or a delegate, the sum of $10 or an amount equal to one percent of the amount of the check or money order, whichever is greater. This penalty is in addition to other penalties provided by law and is applicable each time the check or money order is presented to the department or the department is requested by the person tendering the check or money order to present it to the payor.
