Lauryn Hill

Ready or not ... Lauryn Hill has just reported to federal prison in Connecticut, where she will begin her 3 month sentence for tax evasion, TMZ has learned.

Officials tell TMZ ... the former Fugees singer was booked into the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury at 11:15 AM EST.

We're told the FCI is a "minimum security type facility" where inmates live in "barracks type" housing.

We're also told 38-year-old Hill will not be isolated in the facility -- and will be housed with the general population.

As we previously reported, Hill pled guilty last year to three counts of tax evasion for failing to file returns on $1.8 million she earned from 2005 to 2007.

Well her situation is far more complicated than some of you realize, besides she's not part of the 1% you all should be complaining about. At some point in your life when you start earning some money you may have some challenges paying all your taxes!

Why do people call her a deadbeat? She earned that money. Not the government. Income taxes are unconstitutional. But all the sheep go baah baah..
