'Clean House NY' Sued

And Stuck Me with Taxes

"Clean House New York" screwed over a person they pretended to help ... by sticking him with the income tax bill on his remodel ... so claims the man who also said the show wrecked his pad.

Paul McClure appeared on CHNY in 2011 after his mother died ... leaving him with a lot of clutter.  He says the show offered to redesign his Manhattan pad and remove all the junk.

But McClure says the 'Clean House' crew promised not to make any structural changes but they knocked down a wall, damaged furniture, and made shoddy repairs ... according to his lawsuit. He also claims they got rid of an expensive rug, some vintage doors and stuff with sentimental value.

McClure says he was told Uncle Sam is entitled to taxes on the value of the remodel but the show promised to foot the bill.  McClure says the show only paid part, so he's pissed.

McClure is suing for $300K minimum.

If the shows pays the taxes then that is likely taxable income as well. Was the show going to pay the tax on the income tax? Kind of doubt that.

Fraud & lies are the staples of reality television. Andy Cohen for one should be sent to live out his days in a 3rd world country.

It is now acceptable in America to make sex tapes, pimp out your children and lie about everything.

Even the production crews of these shows are being screwed over. There are battles brewing over living wages and safety.

Be careful what you wish for this person got screwed and does not have the money to finance long litigation. I hope the best for him, by the way TMZ is a Giant leach that feeds off of these stories.

You signed the contract which would have stated every single thing. The problem with contracts is a lay person will not read or understand the entire thing. You should have had your own estate lawyer read through it and explain it to you before you signed on the line. Sounds like your greed got the best of you. You lose, son.
