- Use of the "ZIP Code" invokes Federal Jurisdiction -
Use of the ZIP Code is voluntary (see Domestic Mail Services Regulations, Section 122.32). The Postal Service can not discriminate against the non-use of the ZIP Code (see Postal Reorganization Act, Section 403 [Public Law 91-375]),
The federal government utilizes the ZIP Code to prove that you reside in a "federal district of the District of Columbia." This is why the IRS and other government agencies (both state and federal) require a ZIP Code when they assert jurisdiction by sending you a letter. Though they claim its use is to speed the mail, it is a well planned and subtle trick. It is also PRIMA FACIE EVIDENCE that you are a subject of Congress and a "citizen of the District of Columbia," who is "resident" in one of the 50 several states. U.S. "residency" was, along with U.S. "citizenship," established by the 14th Amendment. The definition of the words "resident" and "inhabitant" mean the same thing (27 Fed. Cas.#16,024 US. v. Penelope (1508)). Since nearly all exercise of jurisdiction by federal government is "Commerce Clause" based, action by the feds may only be taken upon U.S. residents. A resident is one who opens a store or takes any step preparatory to business. A resident engages in buying and selling, a commercial activity. The "step preparatory" was the "birth certificate" (another subject, for another time).
The receipt of mail with a ZIP Code is one of the requirements for the IRS to have jurisdiction to send you notices. The government can not bill an American National, as he is not within the purview of the municipal laws of the District of Columbia. In fact, the Internal Revenue Service has adopted the ZIP Code areas as Internal Revenue Districts (see the Federal Register, Volume 5 1, #53, Wednesday, March 19, 1986).
Remember, the Postal Service is a private corporation, no longer a full government agency. It is a quasi governmental agency like the Federal Reserve System, the Internal Revenue Service and the United States Marshall Service. As private corporations they are all outside the restrictions of the Federal Constitution. They are all powerful in their respective areas of responsibility to enforce collection for the federal debt.
When you use the Zip Code you are, in effect, saying openly and notoriously that you do not live in the American Republic, but instead, are a "resident" in the "state of the forum" area of the District of Columbia (a federal district). This places you within the municipal jurisdiction of the District of Columbia. Now, what is your status? Are you a "slave" and a second class citizen (so commonly referred to as a "federal or U.S. citizen") or are you an American National, in the American Republic? Don't we say: I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands.....? You must decide who and what you are. The importance of exercising your claim of exemption from use of the ZIP Code can not be overstated. This is especially true when litigating federal matters. When you claim the exemption from ZIP Codes you show the status of not a U.S. resident. Many people simply leave the ZIP Code off, but this just looks like an oversight on your part, not an intentional act of claiming the exemption, and "they" will simply issue the ZIP to you.
To claim the exemption from ZIP Codes:
1) Write "c/o" before the street address.
2) Use the "postal zone" (follow the name of the city with the last 2 digits of the ZIP).
3) Spell out and underline the state.
4) Add the words ZIP EXEMPT.
5) Use upper and lower case letters with initial caps only, don't use ALL CAPS.
6) Don't appreviate Street, Highway, Avenue, etc. (optional)
