Someone forgot to educate Lauryn Hill on the importance of filing tax returns.
The singer, who's amassed a generous income of about 1.6 million, allegedly failed to file her income tax returns for three solid years. Whoops?
The U.S Attorney's Office in New Jersey issued a statement saying that in 2005, 2006 and 2007, Lauryn didn't file returns for her four corporations, Creations Music, Inc., Boogie Tours, Inc., L.H. Productions 2001, Inc. and Studio 22, Inc. or the money she earned from music and film royalties.
Lauryn is mostly famous for her stint in the hip-hop trio The Fugees and her outstanding Grammy award-winning album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. Since the peak of her success in 1998, she withdrew from the spotlight and had six children, five with Bob Marley's son, Rohan Marley.
Lauryn will plead her case in court on June 29, and if found guilty could face up to three years in prison and a $300,000 fine.
