Talk about being saved by the bell. 

According to the good folks over at TMZ, Ms. Hill’s sentencing on her tax evasion charges have been pushed back to May 6th. This gives her the opportunity to put a dent in the $968,000.00 that she owes Uncle Sam.

Her attorney also stated to the court that Ms. Hill recently signed a record deal with Sony which is worth $1 Million Dollars, and that she was also planning on taking out a loan to the tune of 650,000.00 to help pay down the debt.

Even with all that, she still could face jail time. Looks like the world will know come May 6th.
