This is now driving me crazy--is there an accountant or tax lawyer on the board? I remember, growing up, sitting in on a meeting my mom had and it was explained that classes and such taken at the church (not Scio) were not tax deductible, as anything "donated" to a church that benefited an individual did not qualify. Buildings, stained glass, etc. were because it did not benefit or give special rights to an individual. Heard this again years later and so was ALWAYS confused when Scientology 'donations' were deemed to be deductible. Anyone have the skinny on this? Google is not being my friend right now...it's not turning up the info I'm looking for.
