- May 10, 2010To 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).
