You are not taxed!

this is in reference to doing something, and saying that this activity is not taxed by the government or any authority so you should not fear in doing it, or to encourage that person to do it more often.

It's taxfree

It might have been said in a manner of joking. We often say such things regarding laughter and other such matters that these are 'tax free'/ 'not taxable' etc.

I hope it helps.
