Court To Decide If Scientology Payments May Be Tax-Deductible - 1988-04-18
WASHINGTON (AP) _ The Supreme Court today agreed to decide whether payments, called "fixed donations," made to the Church of Scientology by its members may be claimed as federal income tax deductions.
The court's decision, expected sometime next year, will resolve conflicting rulings by federal appeals courts.
The case will be decided by a seven-member court. Justices William J. Brennan and Anthony M. Kennedy disqualified themselves today for unexplained reasons.
