NEWARK, N.J. – Five-time Grammy winner Lauryn Hill has been charged with failing to file income tax returns for several years with the IRS, the U.S. Attorney’s office in New Jersey announced Thursday.

Hill earned more than $1.6 million during 2005, 2006 and 2007, the three years that she allegedly failed to file returns, federal prosecutors said. Hill’s primary source of income is royalties from the recording and film industries, prosecutors said. She also owns and operates four corporations: Creations Music, Inc., Boogie Tours, Inc., L.H. Productions 2001, Inc. and Studio 22, Inc., according to court papers.

A message left early Thursday for her California-based attorney, Nathan J. Hochman, was not immediately returned.

The 37-year-old Hill got her start with The Fugees and began her solo career in 1998 with the critically acclaimed album, “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.”
