If I close an account, will Mint zero out that account automatically without losing prior transactions?

The reasoning behind my question is related to a bank closure. FDIC closed DoralBank in Puerto Rico recently this year (2015) then FirstBank of Puerto Rico inherit my accounts, therefore Mint.com is accessing all my accounts in DoralBank website and all my accounts in FirstBank website and both have the same balance. I don't want to lose the transactions in Mint from DoralBank but would like the balance to be $0.00. That will prevent duplicity of balance or take into accountability money/funds that don't really exist, because that balance has been transfer to new Bank's account.

Yes, setting it from "Active" to "Closed" will drop the balance value to $0 and allow you to keep all of the transactions.  You can also use the "Hide" tab to hide the old account from view normally, but switch it back to show when you want to be able to see your old transactions.

People come to Mint for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
