Jeffrey Augustine, author of The Scientology Money Project, has a petition demanding the IRS Investigate the Church of Scientology's Tax Exemption. Here are eleven reasons to sign the petition.

It's Time for the IRS to investigate Scientology's Tax Exemption

The Church of Scientology is a predatory and inhumane organization. The IRS needs to open an investigation into Scientology's ill-gotten tax exemption.

Scientology critic Jeffrey Augustine, author of the acclaimed "Scientology Money Project" blog, has launched a petition demanding that the IRS Commissioner open an investigation into the Church of Scientology's tax exemption.

More than 6,500 people have already signed the petition in a very short time. Click here to read the petition: We Demand the IRS Commissioner Begin an Investigation into Scientology's Tax Exempt Status

This petition supports actress Leah Remini's call for a Federal investigation into the Church of Scientology. Leah Remini is presently the host of the Emmy-nominated A&E show "Scientology and the Aftermath." This show tells the stories of former members of the Church of Scientology.

As Augustine explains, "This is a shocking but true fact: Due to a loophole in the IRS Restructuring Act of 1998, there are only three people in the entire US Government who can call for an investigation into Scientology’s tax exemption or that of any other church.

The IRS Commissioner has the legal authority to open an investigation into the Church of Scientology's 501(c)3 tax exemption. The Commissioner is the most logical person to petition given the current IRS Code as it relates to churches.

You do not need to be a US citizen to sign the petition. This is a petition and not an election.
