Lauryn Hill dug real deep in her pockets on the day before her sentencing.

The Grammy Award-winning singer, who is scheduled to be sentenced today for federal tax evasion charges, has paid off the balance of $900,000 she owed in back taxes, state taxes and penalties, Reuters reports.

“Ms. Hill has not only now fully paid prior to sentencing her taxes, which are part of her criminal restitution, but she has additionally fully paid her federal and state personal taxes for the entire period under examination through 2009,” her attorney, Nathan Hochman, said.

Last year, the 37-year-old plead guilty to three counts of federal tax evasion, after failing to file tax returns on more than $1.8 million between 2005 and 2007.

Hill is scheduled to appear at a U.S. District Court in Newark, New Jersey for sentencing today. She faces up to a year in prison for each of her three charges, however her attorney expects for the final sentence to be adjusted due to her recent repayment of the money.
