Uncle Sam is one guy folks should try to avoid at all costs. Lauryn Hill is learning the hard way that the wrath of this guy is not pretty, especially when you haven’t filed taxes for three consecutive years. Per TMZ.com, the feds are coming after Hill for not filing her tax returns in 2005, 2006 and 2007. Here’s the kicker: Hill earned more than $1.8 million, but couldn’t be bothered with the minute things in life, like filing taxes.
The Federal court in New Jersey filed against her this morning, and she’s scheduled to appear in court on June 29, reports TMZ. If Hill is found guilty she could face up to a year in prison or have to pay $300,000 in fines. Strangely enough Lauryn Hill recently started to do shows again (perhaps in preparation for the possibility she may owe the IRS). On Sunday Nas brought her out as a surprise guest at Hot 97 Summer Jam where she looked and sounded good despite critiques of her former performances. What’s up with celebrities not filing or paying their taxes? This is why they pay accountants, financial advisers and attorneys big bucks to oversee their finances. Hopefully Ms. Hill can work this out without jail time. We’re still secretly hoping for a comeback.
