Songstress Lauryn Hill (pictured), who nearly six months ago was released from federal prison on a tax evasion conviction, is now reportedly facing yet another battle with Uncle Sam, according to RadarOnline. Hill has reportedly been slapped with a slew of liens from the Internal Revenue Service, totaling a whopping $866,868.05.

Hill, who is the Mother of six children and currently on a national tour, has reportedly been hit with seven liens beginning with tax year 2005 and ending in 2011. RadarOnline obtained Hill’s filed January 14th tax documents and the New Jersey resident reportedly owes the following amounts: for 2005, $422,008.26; 2006, $19,838.75; 2007, $61,158.50; 2008, $58,405.71; 2009, $30370.91; 2010, $13,247.73; and 2011, $261,838.19.

The 38-year-old Grammy Award-winning singer, who pled guilty to three counts of failing to file tax returns on more than $1.8 million between 2005 and 2007. was incarcerated for a three-month stint last year. Hill was released last October but then faced three months of home confinement and a year of supervised probation. Hill, who has sold 16 million albums over the course of her career, was also ordered to pay penalties and the taxes she owed. She has since satisfied that tax debt.

Is Uncle Sam gunning for Hill again merely because she is Black?

According to Hill’s last rant against the government, where she claimed racism played a huge role in her tax woes, she is a victim of a racist system, expressing on her Tumblr page:

The hatred, violence, cruelty and brutality that [black people] were shown by White people for centuries.”

Hill went on to further explain why she was targeted by the Feds:

To me, it is obvious that the accumulation of generational trauma and abuse have created the very behaviors the system tries to punish, by providing no sufficient outlets for the victims of institutional terror,” she claimed. “Clearly, the institution tries to hide its own criminal history at the expense and wholeness of the abused, who ‘acting out’ from years of abuse and mistreatment, reflect the very aggression that they were exposed to.
