SEARCH RESULTS: IRF Independent Reporting Form - for non-tithing reporting members who decided to go on their own and send in some money, but not tithe their whole income. They would receive complimentary copies of GP material, but were no longer privy to the inner movement or DO writings of the organization. This status was made available after the RNR in 1978, supposedly to free members to live as they wanted to. It was later disbanded and there are newer terms now with different meanings.
