Lauryn Hill is Going to Prison

Lauryn Hill, multi-platinum, grammy-winning singer, turned herself in today to begin serving her three-month prison sentence for three counts of failing to file her tax returns. She plead to three counts, but apparently failed to file for a few years before that, though she apparently reported a loss for that period. After her incarceration, she will have house arrest followed by probation, and will have to pay $60,000 in fines in addition to repayment of the outstanding tax dues.

Failure to file tax returns has tripped up quite a few otherwise successful people, including other musical artists. Rapper Fat Joe was recently sentenced to incarceration for his own failure to file tax returns. The government wants its money!
