BOSSIP Exclusive: State Of NJ Hits Lauryn Hill With Tax Lien For Nearly Half A Mill

Lauryn Hill

Singer Accused Of Not Paying State Taxes

Rumors have swirled for years that The Fugees may reunite for a one off tour.

And it looks like Lauryn Hill may need that tour income more than ever after her home state of New Jersey slapped her with a tax lien for nearly $500,000, BOSSIP can reveal.

The state’s Division of Taxation says Hill – who critics lauded for her performance at the Montreal Jazz Festival earlier this month – owes $438,221, and issued the tax judgment June 30, according to records obtained by BOSSIP.

Lauryn Hill hit with a tax lien

The state has another open lien against the 41-year-old from 2012 for $446,386.60 though it was unclear Thursday whether the two tax debts were related.

It’s not the first time that the “Ready Or Not” singer has run afoul of the tax man. She served three months in federal prison for tax evasion in 2013 after the feds accused her of not paying $1 million in back taxes.

We’ve reached out to a rep from the NJ state Division of Taxation for comment.
