He understands the details of the tax laws and regulations.

Calm Advice That Comes With Years Of Experience

Every day, individuals from all walks of life find themselves up against the IRS. They face audits, liens and collection actions. Many who encounter these types of tax controversies are often scared and unsure of what to do, particularly if tens of thousands of dollars are at stake. Fortunately, there is help.

I am tax law attorney Max Benkel, and I assist clients throughout Atlanta and all across the state of Georgia with tax issues. I also help individuals from Alabama and Tennessee, and throughout the world.


Mr. Benkel filed an offer in compromise on my behalf. Although my tax liability was over $1,000,000, Mr. Benkel obtained a settlement of $2,310. He did a great job and I couldn’t be happier.

I can’t thank Max Benkel enough. I can finally sleep at night because his experience, hard work and persistence with the IRS paid off. I was saddled with an incorrect IRS liability around $150,000 for almost 9 years. I tried to fight the IRS Machine by myself with no success. I called Max. He set up a no-charge personal office consultation that day and reviewed my situation. He knew exactly how to handle the matter, the labyrinth of invisible people within the IRS to deal with, and eliminated the entire debt…

I am so elated over the accepted offer you presented. To be able to compromise a $ 75,000 IRS debt for only $4,800 is wonderful. I knew I selected the right attorney as soon as I met you. Thanks again, this is a life-changing matter for me.

This attorney is extremely knowledgeable concerning all the tax laws and can handle even the most difficult tax issues successfully. I fully trust him in preparation of all my tax filings and tax questions. He is dependable, courteous and you can count on him to be in your corner to assist and protect you to the fully extent of the law.
