CHURCH OF SPIRITUAL TECHNOLOGY, Plaintiff-Appellant,
The UNITED STATES, Defendant-Appellee.
United States Court of Appeals, Federal Circuit.
March 29, 1993.
Rehearing Denied April 26, 1993.
26 Cl.Ct. 713.
**1 The Church of Spiritual Technology appeals the judgment of the United
States Court of Federal Claims, 26 Cl.Ct. 713 (1992), sustaining the
decision of the Commissioner of Internal Revenue that it was not entitled to
tax-exempt status under I.R.C. s 501(c)(3) (1982). On the basis of the
reasoning set out in the opinion of the Court of Federal Claims, we conclude
that the Church of Spiritual Technology did not carry its burden of proving
that it is both organized and operated exclusively for tax-exempt purposes,
Treas.Reg. s 1.501(c)(3)-1(d)(1)(i)(a), and that it therefore did not
establish its eligibility under I.R.C. s 501(c)(3). We affirm.
