Clear Creek is a tax resolution firm based in Louisville, Colorado. It was launched in 2004 and has an A- rating with the BBB. The company claims to have five tax attorney teams and a staff of more than 100 employees.

What Services does Clear Creek Offer?

Clear Creek is a full-service tax consultancy and mediation company that can assist with anything from preparing unfiled tax returns to negotiating for tax debt mitigation. The company focuses on providing protection from tax levies, wage garnishments and tax liens.

How Does Clear Creek Tax Work?

Clear Creek provides customers with a free 15-minute consultation to assess their eligibility for tax mitigation services and create a personalized tax defense plan. Each case is managed by a team of tax experts under a tax attorney. Clients can contact Clear Creek by phone, using its website's chat room or by filling an online form. Only taxpayers with $10,000 or more in tax liability are considered. Eligible clients must sign a power of attorney before Clear Creek will start processing their case.

What Negotiation Options Does Clear Creek Explore?

Clear Creek claims to look into all possible tax mitigation. Its strategy is divided into proactive and defensive steps. Proactive steps include creating a corporate structure that protects businesses from creditors and allocating assets in a way that prevents individuals from having their bank accounts levied or their wages garnished. If the IRS or state tax authorities have already started collection measures against taxpayers, Clear Creek takes defensive steps to lift levies and garnishments and negotiate an equitable solution. Negotiation options include installment agreements, penalty abatement and certificates of discharge.

What is Clear Creek's Fee Schedule?

Clear Creek does not have a fee schedule or pricing guideline on its website. However, they do provide a broad estimate of fees on the initial call. We were quoted between $2,000 and $4,000 for a $50,000 tax liability case. On another occasion, we were asked for a $2,500 upfront fee for a similar $50k tax liability case.

Which States Does Clear Creek Operate In?

Clear Creek Services claims to operate in all 50 states.

How is Clear Creek Better/Worse Than Other Tax Relief Companies?

Clear Creek has over 15 years' experience in the tax mediation business. It employs tax attorneys, has a staff of over 100 employees, and an A- rating with the BBB. Its prices are on the high side, but tax relief companies that hire tax attorneys generally charge higher fees, which is understandable.

However, Clear Creek does have a sketchy history with the BBB. In 2012 and 2013 it had a C- rating and many customers complain about its aggressive marketing and its use of bait and switch techniques when it comes to quoting fees. Clear Creek requires a large upfront fee and does not have a refund policy; so it is a good idea to get in writing which services are included before you pay any fees.

Let me start off first with there sales pitch. Remove 40% of penalties and interest in 30 to 45 days. Well for starters if your tax lien is fairly new than there is no way it's 40%. Secondly the IRS doesn't move within a 30-45 day guideline. And come on folks what attorneys do you know charge a flat rate? Any attorney worth a salt is going to charge a retainer and hourly rate. And the first rule is don't trust anyone who says they guarantee an outcome. But lastly, ... this outfit is a bunch of felons on parole and in halfway houses. I found out my rep was recently released from prison on a very serious charge and I am sharing personal information with him. From my understanding most of the sales reps are all convicted felons. Look at the the ripoff reports online and please check out who you are doing business with, check the links below to see about your representative and just a few examples of there deceiving tactics. My advice hire someone who has a local office and be smart. www.doc.state.co.us › oss (felon search) www.ripoffreport.com › Clear-Creek-Tax www.ripoffreport.com › CLEAR-CREEK... www.ripoffreport.com › CLEAR-CREEK... www.complaintsboard.com › complaints
