According to reports, Hill, who now lives in New Jersey, is accused of failing to file federal tax returns with the IRS on more than $1.6 million in earnings during the years 2005, 2006 and 2007.
Due to that, Lauryn faces a maximum penalty of one year in prison and $100,000 in fines for each count.
She is scheduled to appear in court on June 29.
The artist’s most recent album is “The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill“, a huge success.
In 2010 she announced she was planning a comeback.
Such a shame Lauryn Hill went back in the public eye for not paying the tax man.
