There has been created a fictional "Federal State within a state". See Howard v. Sinking Fund of Louisville, 344 U.S. 624, 73 S.Ct. 465, 476, 97 L.Ed. 617 (1953); Schwartz v. O'Hara TP. School Dist., 100 A. 2d. 621, 625, 375 Pa. 440. (Compare also 31 C.F.R. Parts 51.2 and 52.2, which also identify a fictional State within a state.) This fictional "State" is identified by the use of two-letter abbreviations like "CA", "AZ" and "TX", as distinguished from the authorized abbreviations like "Calif.", "Ariz." and "Tex.", etc. This fictional State also uses ZIP Codes which are within the municipal, exclusive legislative jurisdiction of Congress.
This entire scheme was accomplished by passage of the "Buck Act", (4 U.S.C.S. Secs. 105-113)
Do not use the two letter abbreviation of any State or a zip code in your personal return address or the addresses’ address, no matter if you are using a P. O. Box or not, unless you want to live in a Federal Zone.
The way I have my address is: Steven Pattison, C/O United States Post Office, XXXXX Reeder, Overland Park, Kansas, no more, no less, period. If you want, you can add “Without U.S.” at the end or after your street address.
When using the UPS service, it is up to you, but they will not take it without a zip code. I would put “non assumpsit” or “All Natural Rights Reserved” at the top of the paper work and use the zip code in brackets, for example: [12345-0001].
If you happen to get mail that has a two letter abbreviation of the State you inhabit or a zip code on it, open it. I do not believe anyone is going to charge you with opening improper addressed mail. If you correspond with anyone that has used incorrect information, you may notify them of the fact or just cross off the incorrect information and put in what you know to be correct. When I get a check with my name all in caps and an incorrect address, I simply correct the information on the back of the check, date it and then sign it. The bank has always honored my checks that I have corrected in this matter.
I just mailed a letter registered, insured and restricted delivery. The postal worker asked for the zip code. I replied, “A zip code is not required.” His computer would not complete the transaction without a number. Without any hesitation, he said any old numbers will work and typed it in his computer. He completed the mailing without a problem and without adding any zip code to the letter.
A personal note: I do not believe anyone can disappear from the “powers to be” unless you are one of them, a crook. Think about it. They, the “powers to be”, know who you are married to, where you last worked, your name and the list goes on. I do not think there is any lawful way to disappear and still have a life. Any plan will only look like you have done something wrong and the people you know that are non believers, may think the same thing of you. If you are going through some sort of plan to get out of the system, there is only one way and that is right down the middle of the road, with your lights on and the horn a blown. You can require the telephone company to only print your name and phone number. They will not print a zip code or your address, look up my name in the phone book. Unless I give it to someone, the general public will have a problem finding my address. The “powers to be” know where I inhabit. I have notified them via register mail.
