Lauryn Hill is still on Uncle Sam’s bad side! Just five months after serving prison time for tax evasion, the singer was recently hit with another batch of liens from the IRS.
According to RadarOnline.com, the former Fugees songstress was served with seven separate liens for a grand total of $866,868.05. “The IRS claims that in 2005, Hill failed to pay $422,008.26,” the tax documents reveal in a six-year breakdown. “For 2006, she owes $19,838.75; 2007, $61,158.50; 2008, $58,405.71; 2009, $30370.91; 2010, $13,247.73; and 2011, $261,838.19.”
If you’re a fan of the soul star, then you know she served three months behind bars last year. She was convicted of failing to pay nearly $1 million in taxes.
“To me, it is obvious that the accumulation of generational trauma and abuse have created the very behaviors the system tries to punish, by providing no sufficient outlets for the victims of institutional terror,” she wrote in a Tumblr post after her conviction. “Clearly, the institution tries to hide its own criminal history at the expense and wholeness of the abused, who ‘acting out’ from years of abuse and mistreatment, reflect the very aggression that they were exposed to.”
Lauryn has yet to comment on the new case but we’ll keep you posted as more details arise.
