Under terms of her plea agreement, the eight-time Grammy winning singer will spend the next three months under home confinement.
Hill, 38, was sentenced in May to three months in jail for tax evasion. She will also serve an additional three months of home confinement following her release.
Lauryn Hill’s attorney said the Grammy-winning singer has paid her overdue taxes ahead of her scheduled sentencing for tax evasion.
Lauryn Hill pleaded guilty last June to failing to pay taxes on $1.8 million earned from 2005 to 2007.
Hill was charged earlier this month with failing to file income tax returns for several years with the Internal Revenue Service.
Federal prosecutors say Hill earned more than $1.6 million during the three years that she failed to file returns. Prosecutors say her primary source of income is royalties from the recording and film industries.
