It is wrong to take money from any government agency with out having the right for it. Muslim should always be sincere , truthful and honest. 
'You need to return that money to its owners and if can not, then give it to the poor on behalf of the owners and not as a donation from you.

Wassalam.

Harming people is not allowed in Islam. If it does not harm them now or in the future and you are sure that they will never object on it, then it becomes permissible.

In the case of khums payment, it is not dependent on whether you work or not. It is a matter of what you have when your khums date comes. Should you have any savings that you have not paid khums on before, and it is your pure excess and savings from that year, then you will need to pay khums on it. 

In addition to this, another case of khums being applicable on you would be items that you own and are new and you have not used. 

Please refer to your Marja' taqleed for detailed information.

And Allah knows best.

Wasting money is forbidden in Islam and considered as one of the major sins, but if money is been thrown in the air then collected by children or participants in the wedding as a gift for them to make them happy, it will not be wasting money but gifting it to the children or participants. Gifting money should be within the moderate levels and not over the limits, otherwise if the amounts were over the moderate limits, or just for show, it will be then not permissible. If you know any part of the thrown money will be wasted, then it will be not permissible to waste any money.

Wassalam.
