Eight-time Grammy Award winner Lauryn Hill has been allegedly dodging the IRS for several years.
Thursday, the U.S. Attorney’s office in New Jersey announced the 37-year-old singer had neglected to pay federal taxes on close to $2 million, The Wall Street Journal reports. The former Fugees’ member earned the reported sum over a period of three years.
Hill, who is scheduled to appear before a federal magistrate on June 29, could face up to one year in prison and a fine of $100,000 per charge.
The songstress lives in South Orange, N.J., with her six children.
