Lauryn Hill not only owes the IRS $1.8 million in federal taxes, but it was just learned that the troubled singer also failed to pay $440,000 in taxes to the State of New Jersey!
A civil judgment was entered against Hill on June 14th by a Jersey court — finding the Fugees singer is responsible for $446,386 in unpaid state taxes.
A week before the judgment came down, Hill was charged with failing to file FEDERAL tax returns in 2005, 2006, and 2007 … a federal crime. She pled “guilty” and now faces 3 years in prison.
But lucky for Hill, the state tax situation hasn’t become a criminal matter … yet.
Hill is scheduled for sentencing in her federal tax case in November.
Calls to the singer’s reps were not returned.
Hey, I understand tax troubles (I need to flee the country, one day), but almost $2 million!!?? If that’s how much tax you owe, then you certainly made enough income to pay them. What the heck! Is she doing it on principal? What’s the deal?
