lauryn hill says threats to her and her family caused her to not file her taxes

Did you remember to file your taxes? We hope so, because if not you might be in some SERIOUS trouble!

Just ask Lauryn Hill! The R&B songstress has a long history of financial troubles, and could be facing jail time after failing to file her tax returns from 2005 to 2007!

But the former Fugees singer is begging Uncle Sam to go easy on her and says a series of threats to her and her family forced her to live off the grid and stop paying her taxes altogether.

A legal document filed by Lauryn and her team explains:

“She withdrew from society at large due to what she perceived as manipulation and very real threats to herself and her family.”

Yikes! Sounds like some seriously scary stuff!

The singer has already plead guilty to previous charges for missing the April 15th deadline multiple times, but she’s asking the court to take these threats into consideration and says she’ll have an easier time paying off her debt if she’s not behind bars.

Lauryn will be sentenced later this month on April 22nd, and unless the judge decides to show her some mercy she could be facing some jail time.

    all these celebrites love obama, they love paying taxes, they want to pay more. Yet everyday you see a celebrity (mostly back) in trouble for not even paying the taxes they owe much less more. I hope you young people realize what taxes are, I consider them the ransom I must pay for employing myself. you get stuff but another American is being FORCED to pay for it. Prison for ms hill, thats where I would be.

    Haha, liberals crack me up. The rich don't pay "their fair share", but it's okay for celebrities, who are grossly overpaid for little actual work to just not pay taxes. Look at all the celebrities who have been in trouble for tax evasion. How many were right-leaning? The left (not all, but most) demonizes the rich, but idolizes the celebrities who are far worse. Disgusting. PAY YOUR DAMN TAXES, A-HOLES.

    I pay over 15% of my income to taxes. That 15% could help me tremendously. I could get afford a new car, or be able to pay off some of my debt. But I pay it and am PROUD to. Celebrities (like Wesley Snipes, I don't know about ^her assests) have so much money it wouldn't affect them at all. Why don't they pay?
