Is there any reason for concern if my maid, a legal resident, just asked permission to report her bi-weekly payments from me on her Section 8 income report?

My maid called this evening to inquire as to whether she can include my bi-weekly payments to her in her Section 8 (Los Angeles) income report. She is a legal resident but not a citizen. Other than tax implications for her, are there any issues that I should be aware of now that this previously non-broached issue has been broached (e.g., tax or legal)? My options are as follows: (1) say no and let her continue working; (2) say yes and let her continue working; or (3) politely inform her that her services are no longer required. She has only been cleaning my apartment for two months and came highly recommended by a friend. Obviously option (2) is preferable but I’d rather be safe than sorry.
