NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Grammy-winning singer Lauryn Hill is facing sentencing Monday in New Jersey on federal tax charges.
Hill pleaded guilty last year to not paying federal taxes on $1.8 million earned from 2005 to 2007. A judge two weeks ago said Hill had paid only about $50,000 of more than $500,000 she owes.
Hill said she has signed a recording contract with Sony that will help her pay her taxes. Citing the legal deadline, she made a song available on iTunes over the weekend.
