Facebook will pay no U.S. income tax for 2012 according to Citizens for Tax Justice, a tax advocacy group. Facebook made $1 billion in U.S. profit before taxes last year.

Citizens for Tax Justice (CTJ) say that Facebook will receive a tax refund of nearly $430 million because of tax deductions from stock options that Facebook gave to its employees.
