Yes that's the sentence. It is ambiguous, possibly because English may not
be the native language of the writer. But I would think it is obvious that
each person would have to pay his/her own taxes.

So the only other explanation would be that the money would be taxed in
entirety in Finland, then the programmers would get $5000 leaving a
possible negative amount to the winner, who might also be responsible for
taxes in his/her own country.

Sounds ridiculous doesn't it.  The alternative would be to divide with
money first. I sure hope that they can clear this up.
