Please note that as a result of receiving a $1314.03 from the first Canadian Charter challenge fund, I will accept no donations until further notice.
Many thanks to those who have contributed.

Why make a contribution?
Petros/Peter W. Dunn is the administrator of this blog. It is a time consuming project, and it takes away from other research projects that he is working on and he has a full time assistant to work on those other projects. Therefore, contributions are for defraying costs and for compensating Petros in part for maintaining the blog, as well as doing research to create quality posts–and that is much appreciated.
Why not have advertising?
Some of the participants here have indicated a preference to keep this website free of commercial interests; this will especially keep us neutral when it comes to the services which would most like to advertise here, i.e., cross-border tax specialists, both accounting and law firms. As a result, there was a preference to pay for this site through freewill contributions.
Who may contribute?
Absolutely no one is required to contribute because we are offering peer-to-peer information freely. Indeed, none of the writers here are paid for the fine blog posts that they create. Yet in many cases, the information in this blog could save a reader hundreds of thousands of dollars–for example, the case of people whom a border official has erroneously told that they are US citizens. This blog will inform you of your rights and in many cases make it possible for you to avoid pitfalls and traps set by the IRS and the United States government.
Who may contribute? Those who have benefited from the information; those who wish to keep this site going and providing excellent research; those who wish to improve the quality of presentation; even those who think my cat (Tertia) looks nice, may make a contribution. Past contributors have said to me that they have just simply appreciated what this blog has meant to them.
How to make a contribution
There are currently two ways to make a contribution: (1) Paypal (preferably in CDN funds). The email address is at (@) this domain (isaacbrocksociety.ca) and the prefix is Petros’ alias, (i.e., petros)–if you are confused by this attempt to foil spambots, just simply send me a message using the form below. [I can accept US funds in paypal, but I will have to convert it to CDN in order to extract them–thus, if your money originates in US dollars, fine; but if the funds originate is Euros or some other currency, then better to convert it once for all into Canadian); (2) Send a cheque (in US or CDN funds–US cheques, unlike US paypal payments are not a problem) made out to Petros Research Inc.; send an email to Petros in order to obtain the address information:
Perhaps a concerted effort on all associated forums collectively written with input from followers of all forums may meet the threshold limit and be good piecemeal for vast media coverage. Focusing on “It is unfair and out-of-step with the rest of the world to tax your citizens”
“The Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) has given the US government the incredibly pervasive new power to compel foreign governments to report on the assets of Americans anywhere in the world. “It is unfair and out-of-step with the rest of the world to tax your citizens like this. Put an end to taxation of Americans abroad so we don’t have to continue renouncing your citizenship for the financial good of our families.”
