Wait..WHAT? According to Radar Online, nearly six months after Lauryn Hill finished serving prison time for tax evasion the IRS is coming for her again!
Radar reports that the beloved L Boogie was recently slapped with yet another batch of liens from the IRS! This time to the tune of nearly $867,000!
According to tax documents filed on January 14, 2014 the IRS has served Ms. Hill with seven separate liens for a grand 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, she was convicted of failing to pay nearly $1 million in taxes and was sent to jail even though she paid the amount due in full prior to her sentencing date.
Hill took to her Tumblr shortly after her conviction to vent her frustrations about what was happening to her saying,
“To me, it is obvious that the accumulation of generational trauma and abuse have created the very behaviors the system tries to punish, by providing no sufficient outlets for the victims of institutional terror. Clearly, the institution tries to hide its own criminal history at the expense and wholeness of the abused, who ‘acting out’ from years of abuse and mistreatment, reflect the very aggression that they were exposed to.”
Hill is currently in the midst of a national tour and our assumption is that she will be able to pay the bill this time without being expected to sell her soul in the process. But still…this is unbelievable!
