IANAA, sorry, but you have to be careful about increasing your income. 
depends on your local, regional and federal tax scheme. In some 
jurisdictions, you have to pay a tax on gross income without offset. In 
that case you definitely don't want to call that income as you'd be 
taxed on it. For most other purposes though, i think it doesn't matter, 
as your net number is the same and that's what really counts.
