Lauryn Hill’s NJ Tax Evasion Sentencing is Delayed

Lauryn Hill pleaded guilty last year to not paying federal taxes on $1.8 million earned from 2005 to 2007. At that time, her attorney said she would pay more than $500,000 by the time of her sentencing.

It was revealed Monday in court in Newark that Lauryn Hill has paid $50,000. U.S. Magistrate Judge Madeline Cox Arleo criticized her for relying on the promise of a recording contract to pay the tax bill. Hill left the court without commenting.

The South Orange resident got her start with The Fugees and began her solo career in 1998 with the acclaimed album “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.”
