Internal Revenue Service, CSC's tax-exempt status, reasons:, *

Date: July 18, 1967
The Internal Revenue Service revokes CSC's tax-exempt status, citing three reasons: * Scientology practitioners are profiting from the "non-profit" Church; * The Church's activities are commercial; * The Church is serving the private interests of L. Ron Hubbard (a practice known as inurement). Scientology denounces the revocation, declares its intention to ignore the decision and withholds payment of taxes for the next 26 years.
