    Default Wage Subsidies

    So, my employee received a government "award" for $4500 which goes towards to her wages. I pay it out of pocket, as an employer, and at the end of her contract, the government reimburses me for that award.

    Is that considered income and should be accounted as such? I feel like it should be as it is a benefit to me as an employer, but at the same time the award is under my employee's name, not mine.

    Are you saying that the Government has you pay your employee $4500 in extra wages they you get back from the government at the end of the contract?

    That would be income for the employee and also for you.

    Seems like an odd award.

    Which government? I can't imagine the United States federal government having a program like this without abundant red-tape that would make it clear (as mud?) how the "award" should be accounted for. Maybe one of the states, or a local government? Or is this in another country?
