According to Federal law, federal benefits that you may receive such as social security , veterans benefits and the like are not subject to garnishment for a collection of debt...however there are exceptions to this that state that the benefits can be garnished for federal, taxes, alimony, child support....

So the answer is yes your social security payments can be garnished for unpaid taxes.
