    I don't have anything in the "Other" field at all, so I can't make a choice for 1099s. I'm being told my account is in error, but there is nothing enabled for me to change.

    This article is for schools that use ArbiterPay for paying officials. I see you listed as an official in ArbiterPay and the "Other" section is not available for you. Officials need to make sure that their their legal name is on their profile and their social security number is correct.

    Thank you, Jimmy. I just got an email from one of my assigning associations telling me to fix my 1099 info because it is currently incorrect, and then it pointed to this article. I received 1099s last year so I'm going to assume everything is all right with my account for 2015.

    I appreciate your response. -- T.

    OK, this article would have helped the assigner. Looks like they may have forwarded a link we sent to them. Have a good day.
