Lauryn Hill charged with failing to file tax returns


Nicolas Cage has been quiet lately and Wesley Snipes is already in jail, so we need a new celebrity to get into trouble with the feds over tax evasion. Good thing Lauryn Hill's been charged for failure to file for three consecutive years.

The U.S. Attorney's office in New Jersey said Thursday that Hill didn't file in 2005, 2006 and 2007, a period in which she earned more than $1.6 million in royalties from music movies, and the four corporations she operates, the AP reports. She lives in South Orange, just west of Newark, so that's why she was charged there. She is scheduled to appear in court on June 29.

Now we know what The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill was about. Didn't anyone take the time to tell her what April 15 was? They even gave her a five-year head start. You'd think Rohan Marley would give her a hand with that.
