Lauryn Hill: Tax Cheat?

 Most of us know singer Lauryn Hill (who, btw, turned 37 just a few days ago!) from tunes including “Blunted Interlude,” “Boof Baf,” and even “Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You.” But it may be that Ms. Hill is more than just a singer. She may be a tax cheat.
Hill has been charged by U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman with willfully failing to file three years of income tax returns – for calendar years 2005, 2006, and 2007 – with the IRS.  
According to the government, Hill owns and operates four corporations in addition to being an entertainer: Creations Music, Inc., Boogie Tours, Inc., L.H. Productions 2001, Inc. and Studio 22, Inc. Her primary source of income is royalties from the recording and film industries. The government says that during the three years she failed to file tax returns, Hill received more than $1.6 million in income.
The counts with which Hill is charged each carry a maximum potential penalty of one
year in prison and a $100,000 fine.
