I did some website work for a small organization in CA a while back (I'm in AZ). They had to reorganize their business into something that was more fitting for the area they were in. (long story)
I emailed them an invoice on June 1 for the work I did in May and received a response that they were re-orging and needed time to pay. I gave them an extra month then sent another. Got another email with the same thing. Today I sent an invoice with 20% penalty for late fees and got an email back stating that I was over my legal limit and not to expect late fees included with the payment.
I'd had the terms on the invoices prior to this one, so it's not like this was a surprise. At this point I'd be happy to get my money, but I'm tired of being jerked around too. Should I push for the 20%... or is it a lost cause.
Thanks for any advice.
