Lauryn Hill is now facing eviction from her South Orange, New Jersey home
. Shes only one month past due, yet her landlord has already taken her to court.

Her Tax Troubles

While recently being interrogated by the IRS, singer Lauryn Hill admitted why she not only avoided paying her taxes, but probably why she mysteriously disappeared from the music industry after only one mega platinum album.

Hill claims she stiffed Uncle Sam and fell off the map after the ’90s after receiving scary threats to her and her family.

Lauryn failed to file tax returns for 2005, ’06 and ’07 … when she earned a total of more than $1.8 million. She has already pled guilty and faces several years in prison.

According to official docs … Lauryn stopped paying taxes “when she withdrew from society at large due to what she perceived as manipulation and very real threats to herself and her family.”

However, she won’t go into detail about the threats.

Lauryn’s asking the court to consider a bunch of other factors before her sentencing — including her claim that she can pay off the debt much faster if she’s not behind bars.

Judge rules Snipes must reimburse government

 

Actor Wesley Snipes must reimburse the government in prosecution costs for his tax conviction.

According to court documents, U.S. District Court Judge William Terrell Hodges ruled last week the action film star must reimburse the government about $217,000. Snipes, star of the “Blade” trilogy and “White Men Can’t Jump” among other movies, had objected to the cost.

A jury convicted Snipes in February of three counts of willfully failing to file his income taxes. He has appealed the convictions and his three-year prison sentence
