For some time I worked for an agency located in Las Vegas, Nevada. Everything was OK, but then something changed and I did not receive any payments for last 8 months. We have exchanged some emails, but they only make excuses and false promises. I decided to stop working for them. I have last job - conveniently it is for large and respectable international company, so I will try contact this company directly.
But I would also like to contact some local authorities and tell them about this company. So I would be grateful for any suggestions, contacts, links etc.
BTW: I realized that this company has very poor BlueBoard rating now - all not paying issues. So maybe there are more translators here with some claims towards this company. So maybe we can do something together.

Local agencies to report that malfeasance Oct 29, 2008

SUBJECT: Local agencies to report that malfeasance

Greetings.

You might search online and report that non-paying firm's misconduct to these local agencies in Nevada:

1. Las Vegas Better Business Bureau

2. Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce

3. The departmenf of the State of NV government which issues and records business licenses to firms based in NV or which have a "tax home" in the state. While I am unsure of the exact name of the entity, it is usually connected with the annual assessment and collection of business taxes for the state.

In view of the time which has passed and that firm's evasive non-response to your reasonable queries about receiving your due payment for services provided, you most likely will never collect from that firm, especially since you are located outside of the state's legal system.

Hope this helps.

Regards,

Form 1099 to the US IRS Oct 29, 2008

Have a look at http://www.stevensricci.com/irs_advantage.html to understand how it works. In the USA, an unpaid debt is taxable income.

Usually just the threat of you doing it and the IRS eventually auditing their income tax returns makes tham pay immediately.
