Lauryn Hill Pays Tax Debt Early Without Money From Record Sales

(AllHipHop News)  That was quick. Less than two weeks after Lauryn Hill was ordered to pay back over $900,000 in federal back taxes as well as state taxes and penalties, the ex-Fugees member does just that according to her attorney.

In an email obtained by Reuters, Hill’s attorney Nathan Hochman states that Hill has paid her debt in its entirety:

“Ms Hill has not only now fully paid prior to sentencing her taxes, which are part of her criminal restitution, but she has additionally fully paid her federal and state personal taxes for the entire period under examination through 2009.”

Even after releasing a Tumblr blog post on Thursday(May 2nd) stating she “signed a new record deal, and that I did this to pay taxes” her attorney attests the funds used to make the tax payments were not from record sales. Hochman says the funds derived from a combination of sources and last month that Hill obtained a loan from two pieces of real estate.
