SSRA processes referee payments through Direct Deposit as long as you have done your match report. Your payment deposit will show on your statement as an ACH payment and will reference Seattle Referee somehow. To ensure you get paid for any match worked, fill out your report as soon as possible. If you fail to file a match report, you can not get paid as your match report serves as your invoice/time card to the clubs. Additionally, recreational teams use your report for standings for their regular season games. Payments are processed as soon as we receive payment from the clubs. We attempt to process payments twice per month.
TO ENTER YOUR BANK INFORMATION: Log in to seattlerefs.org. On the left navigation bar is Services. Click on that and you will see a link to Profile. Click on that, and you will see Banking. When you click on the banking tab, you will see blank areas in which to put in your banking information and social security number which is needed for the IRS. SSRA does not have access to your password or SSN. Updating your banking information by clicking the update button will create a Direct Deposit request which goes to the SSRA Administrator.
IF YOUR BANK IS NOT LISTED: Email firstname.lastname@example.org and indicate your Bank and Routing number and we will add your account number in your profile.
DIRECT DEPOSIT REQUESTS FOR A NEW ACCOUNT OR CHANGE OF BANKS WILL NOT SHOW AS CHANGED IN YOUR PROFILE UNTIL YOUR FIRST DEPOSIT AS A NEW REFEREE, OR YOUR NEXT DEPOSIT IF YOU HAVE CHANGED BANK ACCOUNT NUMBERS. Remember, you will see your bank request as a request, or pending until this is done. PLEASE DO NOT USE DEBIT CARD ACCOUNT NUMBERS. Refer to a check or bank statement for your account number.
SSRA is charged a fee if you provide an incorrect bank account number which will be charged to the user at the next pay deposit. So please be careful when entering the information in your profile. The site is secure and all information is private.
SSRA no longer issues checks for referee payments.
Form 1099 NEC: This form for the IRS can be found on the website under REFEREE/ACCOUNTING. Adjust to the necessary year.

As an independent contractor, take time to research what type of expenses can be used to reduce your taxes - examples could be your uniform, mileage, fees and other expenses that are utilized an an official and business owner. Remember, when you check your accounting, that games worked in December, are actually paid in January.
