Incidental punishment means confiscating property, land and houses of criminals. There were different opinions about confiscating property. Money that come from illegal ways would be confiscated in Tang's institution. But all the property should be confiscated in Song's institution. However, the consequences of confiscating all the property caused to broken and homeless family. So it was an important issue that whom should be punished. In general, punishment were used in illegal officials but not for opposite party and common people in society. In general, punishment is more severe for official than minister. If minister committed death penalty, they would be punished confiscating property. But if official committed crimes to banishment, they would be treated to incidental punishment. Ministers and officials had right to appeal to upper government. They maybe receive an alternative death penalty and sentenced to banish punishment.
