Do I have to pay taxes?

Grants, scholarships, and fellowships from Freie Universität Berlin, the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), or the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation are fundamentally tax-free, but responsibility for tax matters always rests with the recipient. For visiting scholars and scientists or postdocs who are employed by Freie Universität, the usual tax rates and provisions apply.
