Reclusive R&B singer and actress Lauryn Hill admitted today she failed to file income tax returns for the years of 2005, 2006 and 2007. Hill was charged June 7. During those years, Hill received $1.8 million in income. While Hill receives most of her income from royalties, she also operates four companies: Creations Music, Inc., Boogie Tours, Inc., L.H. Productions 2001, Inc. and Studio 22, Inc.

According the U.S. District Attorney's Office of New Jersey, each count carries a maximum penalty of one year in prison plus fines and court costs. Sentencing is scheduled for Nov. 27, 2012.

The eight-time Grammy winner is a resident of South Orange, N.J.

Hey, maybe a need for funds will force Hill to come out of hiding and record another record. Silver liniing, right?
