Well, there are laws that are valid in federal places and upon federal people, but then when they define "United States" and "State", they fail to mention the 50 states or the States of the Union. Then it is just a municipal law for the federal zone, but not elsewhere. Were they saving ink when they failed to name the 50 states by name?

You have discovered the exact reason the "federal income" tax doesn't apply to 90% of Americans. Well done.

Do some more digging on definitions in the code and you'll find many, many other reasons as well.

And no, they weren't saving ink. The Supreme Court has ruled multiple times that laws only apply to what is specifically enumerated in them.
