Lauryn Hill Addresses Reports Of New Tax Issues

Lauryn Hill has taken to social media to set the record straight after recent reports claimed the beloved artist was back in tax trouble again.

According to L Boogie, her tax troubles are nothing new. “I’m still taking care of past taxes,” she wrote.

I wanted to address the recent reports in the media that I have new tax issues. This is not a new situation, I’m still taking care of past taxes. This has been an ongoing process, and I have been working steadily towards a resolution. It has been an uphill battle, but we’re getting over the hump. I left the game, I wanted out, the way it was organized needed adjustment. When you eat a lot other people’s debts like I did, and become financially responsible for as many people as I did, a break like the one I took was necessary. It took bold, courageous moves, and cost me certain economic comforts. But, it’s getting better every day, thank God, and I’m living a much more liberated existence because of it.

Thank you for your concern,

MLH

In 2012, Hill pleaded guilty to tax evasion for failure to pay federal income taxes and served a three-month prison sentence in 2013.

It’s good to know she’s making progress.
