ST. LOUIS -- A federal appeals court said Wednesday that the Church of Scientology is a bona fide church whose fixed membership fees are tax-deductible contributions.

The ruling by the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals reversed a decision by the U.S. Tax Court.

Fees for participating in religious practices cannot be given a taxable value, the appeals court said.
