THOSE WHO OPPOSE SCIENTOLOGY
The IRS recognition brought not only an end to decades of conflict between churches and the tax agency, but a formal acknowledgment of Scientologys religious nature and its benefit to society as a whole.
In the wake of that victory, and the Churchs efforts to expose IRS wrongdoing, came many reforms benefiting all US citizens. The Taxpayer Bill of Rights, now a legislative reality, exists today in no small part due to the perseverance of the Church and its parishioners who exposed widespread IRS abuses and demanded a curb of future abuses. Through their use of the FOIA, the Church ultimately brought into public view agency misconduct and computer errors which could have resulted in $1 billion in incorrect assessments. The movement now gaining momentum in Congress to make sweeping tax reform reality rather than rhetoric is, to no small degree, traceable to the groundbreaking work of Scientologists.
In short, when the war with the IRS ended, the ground gained on the road to that resolution yielded victories enjoyed today by all Americans.
