Lauryn Hill

Singer's Tax Problems

Now $440,000 Worse

EXCLUSIVE

Lauryn Hill
didn't just drop the ball on a $1.8 million tax bill from the federal government -- she also failed to pay $440,000 in taxes to the State of New Jersey ... so says the State of New Jersey.

A civil judgment was entered against Hill on June 14th by a Jersey court -- finding the Fugees singer is responsible for $446,386 in unpaid state taxes.

A week before the judgment came down, Hill was charged with failing to file FEDERAL tax returns in 2005, 2006, and 2007 ... a federal crime. She pled "guilty" and now faces 3 years in prison.

But lucky for Hill,  the state tax situation hasn't become a criminal matter ... yet.

Hill is scheduled for sentencing in her federal tax case in November.

Calls to the singer's reps were not returned.

Why does it take 4 months for a judgement, because sentencing is for sale in America... and we're running around the world telling them the "right way" to run their governments and courts.

Love the racism when the biggest tax cheats are old Caucasian males, who pay little next to nothing in taxes, have offshore accounts. Meanwhile your average black entertainer who's a tax cheat gets put through the wringer and is paraded publicly while the biggest tax cheats hide millions, even billions off shore and get to run for office.

I think it's gross that TMZ allows so many racist comments to be posted on this site. I would bet good money that Harvey would not allow comments like these if the subject of the post were a gay person. Just saying.

What a voice , I can honestly say I love the sound she makes, but we all have to pay taxes, although I know they will not solve any of the US's problems, paying factory workers and 'so called middle America' WOULD , why? you cannot live without us, from the richest person in the world (who needs a plate to eat from or a bed to sleep in or a toilet to do #1-2 in) and the kids need an education and of course we need roads ...BUT we really would solve more if we paid the people who work their azzes off. But sorry Hill taxes must be paid. JUST DO IT
