Despite earning $1.6M in income from royalties and performances, but busy being mom to 6 kids, Lauryn Hill has been charged with failure to file her taxes for 2005, 2006 and 2007. The charges are directed towards the four companies that Lauryn owns: Creations Music, Boogie Tours, L.H. Productions 2001 and Studio 22. AP News reports:
“According to court documents, in 2005 Hill received a total gross income in excess of $818,000; during 2006, she received $222,000; and in 2007, $761,000. Each of the three tax charges against Hill carries a maximum penalty of one year in prison and a $100,000 fine.”
The rap diva, who recently appeared at Summer Jam 2012, is scheduled to appear before U.S. Magistrate Judge Michael Shipp on June 29 in regards to the charges.
