Lauryn Hill claims she stiffed Uncle Sam on a massive tax bill for the same reason she fell off the map after the ’90s — scary threats to her and her family.

Lauryn just filed legal docs asking for mercy before her sentencing later this month, claiming there was a good reason she failed to file tax returns for 2005, ’06 and ’07 … when she earned a total of more than $1.8 million. She already pled guilty and faces several years in prison.

According to docs … Lauryn stopped paying taxes “when she withdrew from society at large due to what she perceived as manipulation and very real threats to herself and her family.”

She’s not specific about the threats — but it’s a new explanation for her mysterious disappearance from the music scene after her rise to fame in the ’90s.

Lauryn previously claimed she went underground to get back in touch with her musical roots.

Lauryn’s asking the court to consider a bunch of other factors before her sentencing — including her claim that she can pay off the debt much faster if she’s not behind bars.

Lauryn is begging for probation. A judge will be merciful — or not — on April 22.

    I still will continue to side with Lauryn. She is a queen. Despite all that the media has said about her and things she may or may not have done, this women is full of knowledge. And that alone can make you look crazy to outsiders and people who do not know you.

    God bless you Lauryn and whatever the outcome I hope u remain strong.

    Plenty of people do not know we technically are not supposed to be paying taxes. It’s illegal. That’s why Wesley snipes was locked up as well. It’s just there’s not enough ppl who know and will challenge the gov’t/IMF on this.
