Establishing an Important Precedent

Churches have traditionally been guardians of freedom, protecting citizens against government attempts to dilute or eradicate their rights, and therefore they have often come under attack. To help protect churches from unwarranted government intrusion the 1984 Church Audits Procedures Act was passed by Congress “to give churches a special audit procedure to require the IRS to take greater care in the examination of churches.”

This law is a step intended to help close the door on IRS intimidation and attempts to silence religions and subvert their role in society.

The Church of Scientology blocked efforts by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to undermine this act, and in the course of doing so has preserved the rights of all religions in the United States.
