According to the IRS, Hill did not file income tax returns from 2005 to 2007, a three-year stretch during which she made over $1.6 million. Hill could face up to three years in jail if convicted, so hopefully she has a better defense than "I ran out of stamps." How about "You, the government, kept changing the price of stamps." It's true, they did!
