Singer Lauryn Hill joins a growing list of celebrity tax cheats. With her guilty plea for failing to file federal tax returns on more than $1.8 million in earning between 2005 and 2007, she was subsequently given a three month prison sentence, a $60,000 fine, a year of probation and three months of home confinement.
Lauyrn is going to have a lot of ‘free’ time on her hands. We hope that she uses this time wisely to enrich her life and improve her mind and body. Estonish.com, in an effort to help Ms. Hill’s time be spent wisely, would like to offer her a free care package for her prison and home confinement.
The Care Package
Reading enriches the mind and the soul. So our care package begins with THE CHEAP DIVA’S GUIDE TO FRUGAL AND FABULOUS LIVING The guide offers plenty of fresh ideas on how to have fun and express your sense of style while spending less. The $60,000 fine, in addition to the back taxes, could make things a little tight, so you might want to put some of the book’s ideas into practice – ASAP.
Lauryn has her choice of any of the Taxes for Dummies book series. As a compliment to the ‘Taxes for Dummies’ book, we are providing a free copy, in either Windows or Mac, of Intuit’s leading Turbo Tax software program.
If Ms. Hill prefers watching television, (you may have to wait unit home confinement) we have included a stack of DVDs. For starters, The Wesley Snipes Collection consists of three films loaded with action and starring Wesley Snipes. Features included are MURDER AT 1600 (1997), PASSENGER 57 (1992), and DEMOLITION MAN (1993). These films were some of Mr. Snipes biggest hits before he ran afoul of the tax man.
Also included is the Blade Trilogy set, my favorite Wesley Snipes character. This set contains the first three films in the Blade series, starring Wesley Snipes as the title vampire hunter.
For lighter moments, we have included Lindsay Lohan’s classic Parent Trap and Freaky Friday. Pamela Andersen is featured in the Baywatch – Nightmare Bay/ River of No Return set. Baywatch includes two episodes of the international hit TV series: “Nightmare Bay” and “River of No Return,” both from the early days of the show and both featuring BAYWATCH’s unique blend of action, comedy, and swimsuits.
Rounding out the DVD collection set is Tom Hanks and Leonardo DiCaprio in Catch Me If You Can. Steven Spielberg’s excellent adaptation of Frank W. Abagnale’s autobiography CATCH ME IF YOU CAN follows the cat-and-mouse chase of Abagnale (Leonardo DiCaprio) and FBI agent Carl Hanratty (Tom Hanks) as Abagnale travels the world passing forged checks and assuming false identities.
No care package would be complete without music. Especially when it’s for a music diva. So we have included an Intimate Evening with Mary J. Blige: Live from the House of Blues – The sublime vocal stylings of Mary J. Blige have won over an impressively large and dedicated following. Her subtle blend of R&B and hip hop appeals to a diverse selection of listeners, and her live shows provide ample opportunity for Blige to show off her amazing range. In this release she takes to the stage at the House of Blues in Los Angeles, performing a run through of all her hits in front of a capacity crowd. Among them are “Be Happy,” “I’m The Only Woman,” “You Gotta Believe,” and two special duets; “Whenever I Say Your Name” with Sting, and “I Guess That’s Why They Call It The Blues” with Elton John. Some of these titles seem so fitting.
Last but not least is Willie Nelson & Friends: Outlaws and Angels audio CD. This live album from Willie’s 3rd USA Network special features Willie performing with some of his closest friends & biggest legends making music today.
The prison care package is boxed and ready to ship. All we need is an address. Ms. Hill if you will please email us your preferred shipping address at firstname.lastname@example.org, we will get it overnighted to you.
