How can you have bank statements or tax returns for a business you just started? Even if I put down 0 for years in business?

If you put it down on the app as new it's one thing (bank docs might suffice), but if you wrote anything that makes it seem like you have an established business they'd want to see IRS filings for that business.

True.

My first F/R was for a SPG Biz I opened 5 years ago... They insisted that they need tax returns.

I didn't have, they shut me down... I at least got the sign up points :)

This is where many get in trouble when they claim they have a SP for many years.

Embellishing also makes it easier to get approved.

No problem with getting approved when doing AOR's with a new business. Maybe things have changed.

Embellishing – I like the way you use words.  :)

Considering the questions you're asking, I'd say it's very risky for you to apply for this card. I recommend not doing it unless you really don't care to lose all your Amex cards.

Good luck with that. ::)

If you can apply with the schools tax ID and they'll give you tax docs if you get F/R'd, it might work, otherwise fuhgettaboutit.

true i guess that could work but just be aware if they decide to close you down for biz problems they also choose your personal cards

I don't mess with business apps anymore. If I did I'd put 0 as my years in business.

I have same question.

I got the Biz gold about 3 months ago. I just upgraded it to Platinum, and would wanna apply for this card now.

Any inputs in my chance to get the 75K?
