Tax Treatment of Foundations Foundations themselves enjoy very extensive tax advantages regarding foundation endow- ments, the regular taxation of foundation income, the distribution of income to the beneficiar- ies or in the case that the foundation is wound up. Tax treatment of foundation endowment A foundation fee is charged upon creation of a foundation. For foundations that pursue a trade in a commercial manner, this fee amounts to 1% of the capital.
