W-9 FORMS: There are now 10 of you that have not returned this form. Since we do not include your SS # on the membership forms, we need this filled out for the tax man when sending your 1099’s. So…if you don’t have it on file, you won’t get a 1099, which means you will be late with your information for your tax man…..can download the form, under forms on both track home pages.
