OSC Update #4
Notes from our August board meeting, including financials, operations, and strategy.
New Tax Form System
If you invoice over $600/yr through OSC, we need to collect a tax form from you. When you hit the threshold, you will be notified and sent an email (via HelloWorks) asking you to complete a form online. It's much easier than the old system of emailing scanned documents! Let us know if you have any questions.
Coming Soon: Back Your Stack Upgrade
Right now, Back Your Stack is a tool for identifying and financially supporting dependencies one by one. But soon you'll be able to make one monthly payment to support all your dependencies at once!
This will mean more support for less visible projects, money arriving without extra marketing, and hopefully many new financial contributors! Here's a sneak peak.
