create a Tax Information Section
Every School requires us to complete a W9. it is much less secure to leave a signed W9 at an athletic event or mailing a form through the US Postal Service than it is to have tax information in a section accessible by the athletic director only. Would it be possible to have a section that is fully encrypted that would allow the official to update the personal tax info online and to allow the AD to get the info from this same site?
We will not be able to work on this now, but we’ll leave it open for others to see.
Thanks very much for the idea. I would actually agree with you that I would prefer to have ADs and other Business Admins for schools download a copy of the W9 from a secure site within Athletix than always leaving a copy somewhere. I'm sure that not everyone feels the same way, and we'd certainly make something like this optional.
One other thing I like about this idea is that the Official could specifically grant access to others only upon request. That is, you could know who had accessed the information.
The biggest challenge to this feature would be that it would require us to enter a new level of security standards that our staffing doesn't really allow for at this time. We do have security built into our site, but this feature would put us in line with banking regulations. We certainly have confidence we could reach that point someday, but it will not be soon.
Thank you for your confidence in us, and we'll keep you updated if we do pursue this idea.
