(TMZ) - 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 that the former Fugees singer was booked into the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury at 11:15 AM EST. 

TMZ reports the FCI is a "minimum security type facility" where inmates live in "barracks type" housing.

According to TMZ, 38-year-old Hill will not be isolated in the facility - and will be housed with the general population. 

As TMZ 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.
