Can the Internal Revenue services actually garnish my wages for not paying for a public defender?
I was told i did not have to pay because I qualified because of my low income, and then i was going to loose my job because i was sentenced to jail time

Was it a Federal case? Why would the IRS care?
It is not unheard of for a defendant to be charged for a public defender, even if it is only a portion of the actual bill. That wouldn't be an IRS thing, it would be the state that garnishes you. They can also garnish any possible tax refund you may receive from either the state or the feds.

You lied about your income, and now you have to pay.
Crooks like you deserve to be in jail. Too bad we can't just shoot you.
