      To which "United States" are they referring?  The one comprised of the possessions and called United States or the several States of the Union?

      That "very simple fact" doesn't require "going around" so much as just plowed through.  Being subject to the income tax is  a matter of what privilege you exercise to make that income.  Further, the income is not what is taxed.  The income is what is used to compute the tax.  The tax is on the exercise of employing a privileged occupation.

      So, even if I were a citizen of the United States it would still be necessary for me to work in a taxable occupation, "a government trade or business" defined at 26 U.S.C. § 7701(a)(26).

      "How and why am I liable for income tax?"
      To find out the answer, reference section 1 of Title 26 (which imposes the tax); then go to the regulations (Code of Federal Regulations) , and one would find the following:
      26 CFR § 1.1-1(a) General rule. (1) Section 1 of the Code imposes an income tax on the income of every individual who is a ‘citizen’ or ‘resident’ of the United States."
      Who or what is a citizen? Subsection (c) of the same section answers this:
      26 CFR § 1.1-1(c) Every person born or naturalized in the United States and subject to its jurisdiction is a citizen.
      keep going around this very simple fact and see what happens down the road.
