It hasn’t even been six months since Lauryn Hill completed her prison sentence for for tax evasion, and the IRS is after her again.
Radar Online is reporting that the former Fugees singer was recently slapped with yet another batch of liens from the IRS — to the tune of nearly $867,000.
According to tax documents filed on January 14, the IRS has served Hill with seven separate liens for a total of $866,868.05. The IRS claims that in 2005, Hill failed to pay $422,008.26. 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.
Last May, Hill was convicted of failing to pay nearly $1 million in taxes, despite arguing that she had been unable to pay the tab since leaving the music industry.
In a lengthy rant posted to her Tumblr page a month after her conviction, she also claimed that racism was behind her legal issues, citing “the hatred, violence, cruelty and brutality that [black people] were shown by white people for centuries.”
Hill is currently in the midst of a national tour.
