Will I get taxed on income from renting out a room in a flatshare?

Hi
I was wondering whether when an Undermietervertrag contract is signed, I might be liable for tax on the money received for the room. As far as I can tell, no one seems to even mention taxes in a flatshare scnario. Does signing a contract expose me to further tax liabilities?
Also, would I be allowed to sign a contract like this with a non-resident guest?
Thank you...

Just came across this after seeing your other thread.

I don't think you need to worry about this if you're paying Quellensteur (Tax at source), otherwise when you file your taxes you will have to declare the sub tenancy as income or reduce your rent by the amount paid by the sub-tenant.
