Match Expense Reimbursement
The Society will reimburse certain expenses associated with officiating at NERRS sanctioned games and events only. Territorial and National assignment expenses are reimbursed by the Northeast or USA Referee Societies according to their established policies. Expenses for exchange assignments are established on a case by case basis by the Society President.
Reimbursement rates are posted here.
NERRS views its referees as independent contractors for tax purposes.
To be paid, referees must complete 3 actions.
1. Fill out your NERRS administrative forms (contact Treasurer@nerugbyrefs.org if you never received copies)
i. W-9 form that is sent from QuickBooks Online
ii. Direct deposit form that is sent from Melio
2. Complete a match report with a mileage claim for each assignment. For any questions, watch this video.
3. Email Treasurer@nerugbyrefs.org to request payment
i. An email from Melio will notify you once payment is on the way.
ii. If you wish to donate your match fees to NERRS, you can set your Match Facts profile to do so automatically by following the instructions in this video.
If all steps are done successfully, payment should be scheduled within the next business day after the request.
