Click here for the IRS rules for independent contractors.
"If you’ve made the determination that the person you’re paying is an independent contractor, the first step is to have the contractor complete Form W-9 (PDF), Request for Taxpayer Identification Number and Certification. This form can be used to request the correct name and Taxpayer Identification Number, or TIN, of the worker. A TIN may be either a Social Security Number (SSN), or an Employer Identification Number (EIN). The W-9 (PDF) should be kept in your files for four years for future reference in case of any questions from the worker or the IRS."
The rules require that we have the social security for all referees. We are requiring all referees to enter their social secuity number before any payments are made. The entry field is encrypted and will only be used if a referee earns $600 or more in a calendar year.
If a referee does not want to enter this information, the alternative is to download this W-9 form, fill it in and mail it to:
BAYS Referee Reporting, PO Box 536, Dover, MA 02030.
Once it has been verified, the referee may file online game reports.
5. E. U8 and younger players are not permitted on BAYS teams. An automatic age waiver may be granted for a U8 player in the third grade or higher to play in U9 (or U10 if the club does not offer U9) only. Any player who played in the 2011/2012 Season at U-10 or U-9 as a U-8 or below player will be allowed to play in the 2012/2013 soccer year.
BAYS now requires that all coaches complete mandatory concussion training prior to coaching in BAYS. This training can be done in the home on any computer. It will take 20 to 30 minutes to complete.
At the end of the training session there will be a list of questions you need to answer and when you are done a certificate will pop up. You type in your name and save the pdf file or you can print it. It is probably wise to do both. Note: once you log out your information will NOT be saved at the CDC site but be saved if you register and use the NFHS website. Registrars will be expected to have these certificates in hand before allowing a coach or assistant to work with their team.
