    Lauryn Hill has been charged with willfully failing to file income tax returns, The Associated Press reported.

    Ready or not, here the IRS comes.

    Federal prosecutors have charged five-time Grammy winner Lauryn Hill with willfully failing to file income tax returns with the IRS.

    Authorities 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.

    The 37-year-old South Orange, N.J., resident is scheduled to appear before a federal magistrate on June 29.

    Hill got her start with The Fugees and began her solo career in 1998 with the critically acclaimed album, "The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill."

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