Full text
17. For as long as the total withholdings made under section 16 and, where applicable, the total partial payments made by the municipality and accepted by the Minister do not cover the total amount payable, the amount collected by withholdings or by partial payments shall be applied first against the accrued interest and then against the principal.
The balance on the principal shall continue to bear interest.
