What can I do about a general contractor billing dispute?

Question Details: We are nearing the end of a remodeling project and have been reviewing the general contractor's invoices. I have promptly paid all but the most recent invoices but noticed a duplicate invoice. It is an exact duplicate and was paid along with the original. The GC claims that their billing is incremental and each invoice can include adjustments. This is clearly not the case with the duplicate bill but the GC will not acknowledge it. We are in NC and the state licensing board does not provide a dispute resolution service. What is my best option?
