LOS ANGELES (AP) _ The Church of Scientology paid the Internal Revenue Service $12.5 million in a 1993 settlement that established its tax-exempt status, a church official said Tuesday.

Mark Rathbun, director of the church's Religious Technology Center, confirmed some previously undisclosed details of the 1993 settlement reported in Tuesday's edition of The Wall Street Journal.

"Bottom line is, the document is a peace treaty. The war is over," Rathbun said.
