A: In Louisiana, there is no specific state law that mandates companies to provide a receipt for services rendered. However, providing a receipt is a common business practice and is typically considered good customer service. It helps both parties maintain a record of the transaction and can be useful for various purposes, such as insurance claims or tax documentation.

If the tree removal company has not provided you with a receipt, you may want to reach out to them and request one. Explain your need for the receipt, such as for insurance purposes, and most reputable businesses should be willing to provide you with a receipt or proof of payment.
