bucksman will become famous soon enough
On the pay stuff, I don't think the taxes are going to come "out the top" because officials are not employees. What will happen is via ArbiterPay your contracting is through one vendor, which means you hit the 1099 thresholds. That said, talk to your accountant or tax preparer. Since the officiating stuff is now taxable income (has to be claimed that way), one can start deducting various expenses to offset the new income (i.e. licensure fees, travel reimbursement, etc).
