Hi I am one of the experts. Do you mean Personal Independence Payment (PIP)?

Expert:  Adam Hunt replied 1 month ago.

This Personal Independence Payment (PIP) is tax-free for your info.

Have I answered your question? Do you need evidence from Govt website to prove that it is tax free?

Expert:  Adam Hunt replied 1 month ago.

For reference as evidence, you can find PIP on this page stating it is tax-free clearly. https://www.gov.uk/income-tax/taxfree-and-taxable-state-benefits
