    Is my stipend taxable? 5th Oct 17 at 8:55 AM
    I have been working part time and paying taxing on my wage while studying for my PhD. I am very lucky this year to have been awarded a bursary that helps pay my fee's and provides me with a stipend. I am working and studying part time and still paying tax on my wage but wondered if I needed to pay tax on the stipend as it is described as a living allowance?
    Any advice would be warmly welcomed.
