I had been with chevy chase bank for 15 years , back in 08 capital one acquired chevy chase and within a year had completely changed all locations over to cap one - well everything was fine , but i was skeptical the whole time i was dealing with cap one - last year i received a notice from the state about my taxes for the year of 2007 - they claimed i hadn't paid my taxes for that year - so i looked into it and contacted the state about what it was exactly that saw wrong with my taxes , my records indicated i did pay taxes to the state that year - i never questioned it though , because i knew there was a high possibility that my records could have been wrong - so after a few months of the state not contacting me ,
i suddenly received a notice from the state declaring that if i didn't pay the tax amount they were requesting (2897. 00 ) - then they were going to levy my bank account - so abruptly i called the state to take care of the issue - after further review , i had realized that for the tax year of 2007 , i had originally sent in my 1040 to the irs along with my payment , later ( about a week) i realized i had done my taxes wrong - so i sent in a 1040 x which is an amended tax statement with the right figures posted - i then received a acknowledgement from the irs that they had my 1040x and it was under review and within a week they sent me the overpayment back alone with an amended return and a statement agreeing with my figures -
so in january of 2011 i received this first letter from the state about the tax amount owed , i responded ,and in june of 2011 i received a lien notice - so i called the state again , after wrangling around with a few of the state tax department heads they finally sent me to the dispute dept , in which the young lady there took a look at my forms i had faxed over proving the 1040x amended tax statements for 2007 - she concurred that the state was wrong and found i owed no more taxes and promptly contacted the bank who was notified of the lien date by the same means as i
I open my account when I moved to Texarkana. Later I moved to Nash, Tx and I used the bank there. They are most helpful with any matter I've taken to them. They are friendly and courteous and I believe they are most oriented towards customer service. My only problem is that there is not a branch near where I live now, in Wichita Falls, TX or close to my Mother's house in Oklahoma City. I still have my account with Capital One and will continue to business with them.
I charge over 3K a month on my credit card... ASK me how many times they deny a charge at the same places I shop on a weekly basis!
And their customer service department doesn't understand why I am upset.
Far better choices to choose from then Capital One
