I am on a fully funded PhD Teaching Studentship (funded through the university department), which I believed was tax free. However, I recently received a tax code in the post and, when I rang the tax company, they were insistent that I would have to pay tax on it. Does anyone know if this is correct? Everything else I've seen implies that PhD's tend to be tax free. Thanks in advance for your help.
