The embattled singer’s tax issues finally catch up with her.
The AP reports that Hill has been sentenced to 3 months in prison for failing to pay taxes on about $1 million. This comes just after she released a song as part of a deal with Sony that was supposed to help keep her out of prison.
It is unclear where or when she will report to prison. Last July, Hill pleaded guilty to three charges of failing to file federal income tax returns. The following month saw a further string of tax charges to the tune of $440,000. As the AP reports, her attorney had said Hill had paid more than $970,000 to satisfy her tax liabilities. All the charges related to 2005-7, with each carrying up to a year in prison; her attorney had sought probation.
Last month, Hill penned a Tumblr post, saying that “only a completely complicated set of traps, manipulations, and inequitable business arrangements could put someone who has accomplished the things that I have, financially in need of anything.”
