As a tax-exempt organization the Church of Scientology is prohibited from using its earnings for the benefit of any individual. But shocking church documents obtained by RadarOnline.com show that the organization paid big bucks to provide hotel and restaurant services for A-list celebrities like Tom Cruise and John Travolta at its Hollywood Celebrity Centre in Los Angeles – and then claimed them as tax deductions!

According to 990-T forms filed by the Church and obtained by Radar, between 2009 and 2012, itemized deductions for restaurant and hotel services at the Celebrity Center totaled $52,713.00.

"Celebrities would stay at the Hollywood Celebrity Centre for auditing sessions," an insider tells Radar. "There also were times that auditors would go to an actor's private home or visit on set for the convenience and privacy factor. The only Church member that get this level of service are actors and other high profile donors."
