By Justin Bryan
For 2012, there were slightly more than 5.3 million individual income tax returns with an expanded income of $200,000 or more, accounting for 3.7 percent of all returns for the year. Of these, 13,350 returns had no worldwide income tax liability. This was a 10.3-percent decline in the number of returns with no worldwide income tax liability in 2011, and the third decrease in a row since reaching an all-time high of 19,551 returns in 2009.
