A decision earlier this week in California over the tax-exempt status of the Church of Scientology could have ramifications for the Church of Scientology Flag Service Organization here, county officials say.

Tuesday, a federal appeals court in San Francisco upheld revocation of the tax-exempt status of the Church of Scientology of California.

The California church did not view the decision as a defeat, however, because the court also noted in its decision that the Church of Scientology is a bona fide religious organization.
