Zuck may have to pay $2 billion in taxes.
Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg retained an unusually large percentage stake in a company IPO with an unusually large valuation. As a result, he may be facing an unusually large tax bill.
Zuck is facing a federal tax rate of 35%, and a California state income tax of 10.3%.
Facebook has already said that Zuck will need to exercise a boatload of options to raise money to pay his taxes.
Experts estimate that he'll end up paying $1.5 to $2 billion in taxes this year. http://money.cnn.com/2012/02/07/technology/zuckerberg_tax_bill/
