Credit Card Questions

What is a credit card?

A credit card is a type of payment card that allows the person that has it to pay for goods and services then later on pay the balance or make payments to the company that issued the credit card. Credit cards are generally based on a person’s credit and have a certain limit, in most cases, depending on what type of credit card it is and what the person’s credit looks like. A credit and charge card are different in the fact that a charge card balance is required to be paid in full at the end of the month and a credit card requires at least a minimum payment every month. Read below where thousands of Experts were able to provide individuals with answers pertaining to credit card questions.

What is the best credit card for an owner of a new Limited Liability Company (LLC) and how does the new business get credit if it is newly formed?

In many cases, the credit card companies that are in business offer a credit card for business purposes. The business owner’s personal credit will be assessed as well as other factors when the person applies for a business credit card. There are many cases where the credit card company will issue the business a card, but the card will have a limited amount of credit that the business owner is able to use. This limit will increase as the business owner uses the credit card and makes payments and pays the balance off in time. Since most companies use the business owner’s personal credit, then if the person lapses on their payments it would affect their personal credit.

In the state of Texas, if a person has a credit card and they are unable to pay the balance, can the credit card company garnish their pay check and if the person moves out of country, can the company come after them still for payment?

In the state of Texas, a person’s wages cannot be garnished for credit card debt. If the person has no assets, then a lawsuit or judgment would not generally allow the credit card company to take anything from the person. The person would need to try and make small payments on the debt if they have the extra money, but if the person moves out of country, then there may be no way for the credit card company to pursue the person.

If a person sends a check to a credit card company that was marked final payment, what can the credit card company do if the person refuses to pay an extra amount that the credit card company said they owe several years after final payment was made and accepted?

If the credit card company accepted the final payment amount and then contacted the person for a payment of a greater amount several years after the settlement was accepted, then the credit card company cannot pursue the person since the statute of limitations would have ran out as well as them accepting the check that was marked final payment. This would make the credit card balance settled, making the person not responsible for the extra that the credit card company wants.

What credit card protection plans are best if a person were to get sick, have an accident, or die?

In most cases, when a person has a credit card they may want to consider having a form of credit protection just in case anything happens. The person would want to talk to the company that issued the credit card to see if they can get the insurance on the credit card. The following link will help the person decide how to precede; http://www.bankrate.com/brm/news/cc/20090316-credit-card-protection-a1.asp.

A credit card is a form of credit extension that helps a person to buy things and make payments on the balance. When a person is thinking of getting a credit card, or they want to get insurance on a current credit card, or the person does not know where to go to get a credit card. When these questions arise, then the person would need to seek the answers from the Experts.

  • I need help deciding if I can afford to move. My son owes

    I need help deciding if I can afford to move. My son owes me $200,000. I own my condo outright. It would appraise for $220.000. My son wants to get me a mortgage and that way I could invest the money from my condo. He is 28 and I am 61. He got a really great job in California and is in a high tax bracket. He needs the tax deduction but doesn't want to buy real estate in California at this time. His salary is $265,000. plus stock and bonuses.
    His credit rating is in the 700's and mine is not great in the 600's because of short sale in 2012 and my ex-husband's bad credit. What I want is to get into another condo in my building that has two bedrooms and windows and a balcony. I only have three windows and no balcony and though I have 1500 sq ft, it doesn't technically have a second bedroom because it doesn't have a window, so that space is called a den.
    I have two sources of income from two investments: one is a small company that I own 20% of and I make about $30,000. a year and I have some oil wells-three that I expect to make about $7000 to $9000 on over the next few years,(when oil goes back up, it will increase), I have an annuity that I can cash out or roll over into monthly payments starting next November. At that time, it will be worth about $70,000. I can cash it out and invest it or keep it. I have been unable to work because of health problems, but I expect to work again in two years and bring in maybe $15,000. a year. The condo, unit 604, I want is $270,000. I was wondering if it would work to keep the condo I have, unit 1310, and get a mortgage for $100,000. for downpayment on 604. I would invest what is left after downpayment. I would then use 1310 as a rental because there is high demand in this building. I would make about $12,000 a year after HOA fees and property taxes. I would invest what I don't use on downpayment. In exchange, for my son helping me, I would put both properties in his name. I do not have any other money, except that I do expect that my income from the company I own part of will pay me more money, possibly a lot more in the near future. There are no guarantees, though.
    Thank you for helping me! I desperately want to move out of this condo. The rental market in this area and building is very good, so I know I can rent, but my son wants me to stay in this unit and use the mortgage to invest and make me more financially secure. I want to stay in this location because I am going to school a block away and other reasons.
    The condo I want is really a buy, as well, one of the better units in the building.

  • Hi. I have spent most of 2014 preparing to launch a small

    Hi.
    I have spent most of 2014 preparing to launch a small online business--setting up a storefront, securing custom inventory, registering for a trademark, taking a course in ecommerce, etc, etc. All money going out; none coming in.
    My question has to do with income tax filing: If I rush to launch my (finally nearly ready) store before 2014 ends, will I be eligible on my 2014 return to deduct expenses for my home office and other allowable business outlays, including the course I took?
    Thanks.
