Last year Lauryn Hillpleaded guilty to tax evasion charges after failing to file taxes for several years in a row. Now Hill is seeking leniency during her sentencing claiming threats against her family kept her from filing. Lauryn Hill filed legal documents claiming “she withdrew from society at large due to what she perceived as manipulation and very real threats to herself and her family.” Lauryn has requested there be no jail time, pointing out she would be able to pay off her debt quicker if she is allowed to remain free. Lauryn owes taxes and penalties on the $1.8 million she earned over 2005, 2006, and 2007. A judge is set to rule on April 22nd. What’s that saying about death and taxes?
