Throughout Leah Remini's third season, she's worked hard to bring every show back to the concept that the Church of Scientology is abusing people, especially its own members, because it has the protection of the federal government.

As a tax-exempt religious organization, granted by the IRS in 1993, Scientology not only avoids paying certain taxes, but it also has vast legal protections that tend to frighten off law enforcement and the courts from digging into allegations of abuse.

But how did we get here? Alex Gibney's 2015 documentary Going Clear has a good segment on it explaining how Scientology literally went to war with the IRS.
