After admitting to failing to file tax returns between 2005 and 2007, former Fugees star Lauryn Hill could be facing three years in jail.
Earlier this month she was charged with failing to file income tax returns.
She earned approximately $1.8 million from recording and film royalties. As well as spending three years in jail, she could be fined $75,000.
Her attorney Nathan Hochman has said that she plans to pay back the Taxes she owes. Sentencing has been rescheduled until late November to allow Lauryn time to make the payment.
Lauryn had made a statement via her personal Tumblr regarding the non payment of taxes, explaining she did not pay taxes “when it was necessary to withdraw from society, in order to guarantee the safety and wellbeing of myself and my family.”
Lauryn has six children – five of them with Rohan Marley, the son of Bob Marley.
