Dale, you were right per our conversation that the dates were overlapping.
For anyone interested, here is the script I wrote that lists the offending
if this turns up your invoices your problem is overlap.

select i.invoiceid,

from invoices i, masteraccounts ma, invoiceitems ii, payments p

where i.customerid=ma.customerid
and i.enddate>ma.maexpiredate
and (ii.invoiceid=i.invoiceid and ii.paymentid<>null)
and ii.paymentid=p.paymentid

order by i.invoiceid

The offending invoices can be changed with an UPDATE Statement that sets
i.startdate=DATEADD(month,-1,ma.maexpiredate) and sets

This does assume that all the offending invoices are for a one month period
and will require some minor adjustment if this is not the case.
