Lauryn Hill
is throwing in the towel in a bitter dispute with her landlords -- just in time for PRISON -- she's finally agreed to vacate the NJ mansion after they sued her for eviction last month.

TMZ broke the story ... Lauryn's landlords accused the singer of failing to pay her rent in March, so they filed an eviction lawsuit against her.

Lauryn has since reached a settlement with the landlords, agreeing to pay $7,000 in rent and vacate by May 31st. It's unclear if she's gotten the hell out just yet.

Lauryn probably would have put up more of a fight, but she's been ordered to report to prison for tax evasion by July 8 ... so she won't have to worry about room and board for a little while.

When you earn millions you must pay taxes! If the little man can do it on his/her piddley wages, the rich can do it too.

Lauryn Hill settles landlord dispute; South Orange drops lawsuit

Lauryn Hill is settling up her debts large — with the Internal Revenue Service — and (relatively) small: She has reportedly resolved a dispute with the landlords who rented her a home in South Orange that she allegedly used for recording sessions and visiting musicians, against town regulations.

TMZ.com is reporting that Hill agreed to pay $7,000 in back rent and to leave the premises by May 31. Court records confirm the case is settled.

The couple who own the home had been sued, along with Hill, by the town of South Orange for allegedly running a business out of a home, which is a zoning violation, but a lawyer for South Orange tells The Star-Ledger the town is dropping the suit now that Hill has moved out.

Hill heads to federal prison July 8 to serve a three-month sentence for failing to pay her taxes.
