  • The PSF is a Delaware corporation based on Virginia, USA.
  • Donations can usually be deducted as a business expense by consultants and businesses using Python.
  • The PSF has applied for US 501(c)3 charity status (not yet accepted) primarily to facilitate IP transfers, but this will also allow non-business donors in the US to deduct donations as charitable contributions.
  • For European donors to be able to deduct donations as charitable contributions, the PSF would have to create a branch in each European country (although there is an EU effort to centralize this). A similar situation probably exists in other countries as well.
