Lauryn Hill began serving her prison sentence resulting from failure to pay over $1 million in taxes.
Ed Ross, a spokesman for the federal Bureau of Prisons, says the Grammy-winning singer reported Monday to the federal prison in Danbury.
Hill started singing with the Fugees as a teenager in the 1990s before releasing her multiplatinum 1998 album “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.”
She pleaded guilty last year in New Jersey to failing to pay taxes on more than $1.8 million earned from 2005 to 2007.
After she is released from prison, she will be under parole supervision for a year, the first three months of which will be spent under home confinement.
