Q: A client who is an employee architect, he and another employee entered a station design competition by the government office (OVGA). They progressed to the final five and received a prize of $40,000 to prepare a plan for the project, and they were requested to submit an invoice to OVGA for the amount. The ultimate prize for the competition was a contract to design the station. There is no precedent or interpretative decision that fits this situation. Whether the prize will be regarded as assessable income?
