According to the Bureau of Prisons Inmate Locator. Schiff promoted a theory that the federal income tax was very limited in its application and that ordinary Americans are tricked into paying it.

Schiff, 87, had been diagnosed with lung cancer and his son Peter had been seeking a compassionate release. Both Peter Schiff and his brother Andrew believe that their father’s theories are correct but advise people to not follow them.
