The IRS is charging U.S. singer Lauryn Hill with willfully failing to file three years of income tax returns.


KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA (MARCH 18, 2005) (REUTERS) - U.S. singer Lauryn Hill has been charged with willfully failing to file three years of income tax returns with the IRS.

Hill faces three counts of failing to file income that totaled more than $1.6 million U.S. dollars for the years of 2005, 2006, and 2007.


The 37-year-old owns and operates four corporations in addition to being an actress and singer. Court documents show that Hill's key source of income is royalties from the recording and film industries.

If found guilty, Hill could serve one year in prison and be fined $100,000 U.S. dollars. She is scheduled to appear in court on June 29.


Hill was a member of the hip-hop group the "Fugees" before releasing her successful solo record, "The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill" in 1998.
