Lauryn Hill is due in federal court in Newark on Monday afternoon. She pleaded guilty last year to not paying taxes on $1.8 million earned from 2005 to 2007.

Two weeks ago, a judge said Hill had paid only $50,000 of more than $500,000 she owed in federal taxes.

Attorney Nathan Hochman said in an email Monday that Hill recently paid more than $970,000 to satisfy state and federal tax liabilities.

She faces up to a year in prison on each of three counts.

Hill says she recently signed a recording contract with Sony. Citing her legal deadline, she made a song available on iTunes over the weekend.
