Americans Abroad excluded from “Onboard With Mitt Contest”?

Sent to digital@mittromney.com

Dear Romney for President Digital Team,

The “Onboard With Mitt Contest Rules” state the following:

 The Promotion is open to citizens and permanent residents (green card holders) of the United States who are legal residents of one of the fifty states, Puerto Rico, or the District of Columbia and are at least 18 years of age or the age of majority as determined by state law.

Does „are legal residents of one of the fifty states, Puerto Rico, or the District of Columbia“ apply only to and permanent residents (green card holders), or does it also apply to citizens? I it applies to citizens, are American citizens living abroad considered to be „legal residents of one of the fifty states, Puerto Rico, or the District of Columbia“?

Regards,

No response.

On residency, Greenback Expat Tax Services writes:  “If the IRS considers you a resident, you are going to be required to pay taxes on worldwide income“.  On worldwide income, the IRS writes:  “If you are a U.S. citizen… Your worldwide income is subject to U.S. income tax, regardless of where you reside.”  So, according to the IRS, a “legal residents of one of the fifty states, Puerto Rico, or the District of Columbia” includes US citizens who do not live in the fifty states, Puerto Rico or the District of Columbia.  Will the Romney for President Digital Team answer this simple question?
