Lauryn Hill’s tax troubles have made headlines as much as her music.

While rumors began to spread that she was, once again, being sought after by the IRS for back taxes, Lauryn used social media to let everyone know she has things under control.

In a message to Twitter, she says the tax issues she’s having are not new, and that she’s still working with government on resolving the matter.

A report from June 30th states the singer owes $438,211 in taxes, and also a tax lien for over $446,000 in her name.

Even though the state of her bank account is really no one’s business, we’re glad Lauryn set the record straight.
