Lauryn Hill’s tax problems just keep getting worse. Even when you decide to swear off society, the government doesn’t forget that your group had a diamond (10X platinum) selling album & you had a 8X platinum selling solo album ’cause you were still cashing them checks. So IRS is coming to get that ass. Lauryn has already been given a bill by the federal government to the tune of $1.8 million in unpaid taxes. Now, not to be left out, the state of New Jersey says Ms Hill owes them $440,000 in unpaid taxes.
According to TMZ, Lauryn was hit with the news of the Jersey state tax situation a week before she plead guilty to the Federal crime of not paying taxes from 2005 – 2007. She faces up to 3 years in prison on the Fed side of things. The state tax situation won’t become criminal unless it goes unpaid from the time allotted.
