Lauryn Hill Pleads Guilty To Tax Evasion

Lauryn Hill Pleads Guilty To Tax Evasion

Earlier this month, Lauryn Hill explained why she went three years without paying taxes. Instead of going along with the system she pursued a very alternative lifestyle, and giving a cut of her money to the government wasn't part of the plan.

In 2005, 2006, and 2007, Lauryn made $1.8 million, and she didn't file tax returns on any of it. Ms. Hill admitted to the judge that she intentionally and willingly failed to file and she entered a guilty plea that could earn her three years in jail and $75,000 in fines. For now, she's out on bail.
