checking account imported as a loan. How to fix the account type?

I added a new checking account to an already existing bank that I have been using for years. I named that account Home payments and Mint automatically recognized it as a "mortgage account" instead of a "checking account". I tired to change it back, but the options available are only for loans. This is messing up my tracking system completely as it recognizes all income as loan amount, but I don't want to delete and import again since I will lose much of the data that I already have. How can I fix this problem?


Hi mina_marcurius, 

Good day!

Mint should pull the account in as it appears on the bank site. In order to correct this, we'll need to escalate this issue but there are additional information we'll need from you. 

Please send ticket to our support team so they can gather data about your specific situation and communicate with you directly and further assist you. Please see the links below:

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.
