Dubois ordered Sigel to pay all taxes, penalties, and interest as determined by the IRS. No final amount has been decided.
Prosecutors sought a three-year sentence for Sigel, describing him as a longtime criminal who has shown contempt for the law since he was a 15-year-old on the streets of South Philadelphia.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Paul L. Gray wrote in a sentencing memo that Sigel "has utterly failed to cooperate with the probation officer's attempts to determine his current financial condition."
Gray wrote that Sigel, of Lansdale, was allowed several continuances so he could earn money to begin paying restitution to the IRS. Sigel has paid nothing, Gray said.
"For all we know, [Sigel] has earned a significant sum of money and simply squirreled it away, out of the reach of the government. He would not even cooperate with the probation officer to permit a home visit," Gray wrote, "a most basic part of the presentence procedure."
Sigel previously served 10 months in federal prison for illegal gun possession. He violated his probation in that case and was sentenced to a day in jail and six months in a halfway house.
He was found not guilty of attempted murder in connection with a West Philadelphia shooting.
Sigel is best known for his song "Feel It in the Air," for starring in the movie State Property, and for his previous close association with the rap superstar Jay-Z.
