 U.S. Tax Code On-Line
You can access the Code through its own hierarchical table of contents, a comprehensive (flat) table of contents (Note: this file is almost 300K and takes a while to retrieve), or an index by section number, handy when you're looking up a citation in another document.
For example, in Section 9501(d)(7) of the Code, there's a reference to "section 402(i)" which isn't a cross-reference to the Internal Revenue Code at all, but rather a citation of a section of the Black Lung Benefits Act, as the text goes on to explain.
Conversely, a few references within the Code are not linked because the translator program decided they were external references (if you encounter one of these, it's easy to go to the section index and navigate directly to the cited section).
