Why did I not receive the full amount awarded to me?
Awards are currently disbursed through PayPal. Because these payments are for services rendered (security research), the recipient is responsible for any fees incurred.
You can review PayPal's transaction fee table and policy here.
For accounting purposes, we may request a tax document to be completed before an award is paid out if one is not yet on file. You will be contacted via email in this event and asked to complete the appropriate form.
