SAN FRANCISCO, JULY 28 -- A federal appeals court today upheld the revocation of the Church of Scientology of California's tax- exempt status, saying that the church used a sham corporation and other methods to funnel money to founder L. Ron Hubbard.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals also upheld more than $1.4 million in federal taxes and penalties against the Los Angeles-based church for the years 1970-72.

The court said the Internal Revenue Service and the U.S. Tax Court had properly revoked the church's tax-exempt status on the grounds that a portion of its earnings went to Hubbard and his family.
