Singer Lauryn Hill says family safety came before taxes

Reclusive Grammy-winning singer Lauryn Hill has responded to charges of failing to file United states income tax returns, saying she had chosen to "defer" payments during a period of withdrawal from society to protect her family's safety.

37year old Hill who has not released an album since 2001 has made only sporadic public appearances in the past six years

The U.S. Department of Justice said Hill, best known for her Grammy-winning 1998 album "The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill," filed no federal returns from 2005 to 2007 despite an income of more than $1.8 million primarily from film and recording royalties.

Hill is scheduled to appear in court in New Jersey on the tax charges on June 29.
