Lauryn Hill Facing More Tax Bills

Tsk tsk. Singer Lauryn Hill is facing yet another bill for allegedly unpaid taxes just weeks after pleading guilty to failing to file her returns. Hill is really battling with Uncle Sam right now and we know that's no fun.
First, Hill stands accused of owing over $1.6 million in back taxes. In June, she admitted neglecting to file her financial papers for federal taxes between 2005 and 2007, since she was living off the grid and had to support a brood of kids since she was not generating new income. It's a bit of a flimsy story, since everyone has to pay their taxes; it's only fair. But we understand her plight.
The enigmatic singer faces up to three years in jail and a $75,000 fine when she is sentenced in November.
But that's not the extent of her problems. Hill is also facing a big bill for state taxes in New Jersey amounting to more than $440,000. A civil judgment was filed against Hill in a New Jersey court on June 14, according to TMZ.
What a mess!
