Lauryn Hill's tax issues were made public earlier this week, and now the singer is responding to the news written about it.

Hill, according to the New York Daily News, owes New Jersey $438,211. But the singer says the lien with the state isn't anything new.

Hill's previous tax troubles with the federal government ended with her spending three months in jail in 2012.
