Contributor Jeffrey Augustine keeps a close eye on Scientology's financial documents. And he has some new information today that backs up what we've been told anecdotally by our other sources — that Scientology's flagship drug rehab center in Oklahoma, Narconon Arrowhead, is in serious trouble. Take it away, Jeffrey...

Here in the US, religious groups do not have to file tax returns. The only exception is if they have "unrelated business income." If they do, thanks to a 2006 law change, religious groups must file an IRS form "990-T." And even then, we don't have much interest in the "unrelated" income that they report. The Church of Scientology, for example, owns a nine hole golf course at Gold Base that it rents out to local civic groups. The Flag Land Base in Clearwater and Celebrity Centre International in Hollywood each have ballrooms that they rent out. These tend to be trivial amounts and don't tell us much about the real money they're taking in for courses and donations.
