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. Mark Rathbun, director of the church's Religious Technology Center, confirmed some previously undisclosed details of the 1993 settlement reported in The Wall Street Journal. The settlement, known as a closure agreement, ended a struggle that began in 1967, when the IRS argued that the main Scientology church should lose its tax-exempt status because it was a business.
