Is any money given to the Jedi Order taxed, or are they tax-free being that they're supposed to be the defenders of the Republic? Or do they not own money, and thus can't be taxed?

The Jedi had money-they've used it at several points in the series(Ep 1, Qui-Gonn paying for ship parts with republic credits). But there is 0 mention of them paying any kind of taxes. In fact, there is more evidence pointing to Jedi receiving taxes in some small amount. We know that a lot of Jedi don't sleep at the Temple, which means they had to get their housing somehow. We know that no one ever comes to collect a monetary debt from a Jedi. We know Jedi are the Peacekeepers of the Galaxy, which hints at some kind of special police or military force. And we know they deal with high members of political standing, so it would be logical to deduce that Jedi don't pay taxes because they are received for the kind of work they do-risking their lives so others don't have to. They could be paid because of what they do by rich donors, but we never see anyone paying for those services.
