A VERY old and pure form of tax avoidance favoured by governments throughout the western world came before the High Court yesterday. The device is not available to individuals. First they must band together and become recognised as a religion, before they can take advantage of the tax exemptions which are provided by legislatures for religions, or religious organisations, or religious bodies. The case before the High Court concerned the Church of the New Faith, as it is known in Victoria, ...
