What is the name of your state? Texas

We run a small ground transportation business in Texas and were contacted by another tranportation business in California. We performed the services needed by this other company; however, we have yet to be paid. We have made several attempts, including phone calls, email, snail mail, but no resolution. We have been told each time that payment will be made. But, obviously, we have been lied to and deceived, and continue to get the run-around. As of today, we are still trying to collect funds. Messages have been left to no satisfaction. Now, we believe the company is under new management because they answer with a new name. The current outstanding balance is less than $500, and we are no longer providing service to this company. Do we have any options?

My response:

Sure you have options. But, each one costs more than the $500.00.

Write it off as a bad debt, and use it as a deduction on your Federal taxes.
