Lauryn Hill pleads guilty to tax evasion; faces 3 years in Prison

Earlier this month, Lauryn Hill was charged with tax evasion after neglecting to file taxes for three years in a row. The 37 year old Grammy award winner and mother of six yesterday June 29th plead guilty to the charges...three counts of failure to file tax returns for the years 2005, 2006, and 2007, when she earned more than $1.8 million.

According to TMZ, when the judge asked if she "intentionally and willingly" failed to file the returns, she replied, "Yes."

Lauryn faces 3 years in prison and $75,000 in fines. She was released on $150,000 bail and her sentencing hearing has been set for November.

I'm sorry for Lauryn, but every other citizen has to do this to, they even have more less money then she does. I don't feel too much pity for her in this case, but she is facing many challenges lately. May God bless her

That is why I like America...even if say you be President you musto pay your tax!!!

Some people, however, fall for various legal-sounding arguments to demonstrate that paying taxes is unconstitutional. The Supreme Court has rejected all such arguments, and the IRS is well aware of all these ploys.
