Overbilled on credit card, and doesn't match with balance here

I am on autopay every 3 months for $120. I decided to prepay last week before it was actually due. My account balance shows $120, which was what I put in to pay. However, the issue is that my credit card was charged $135.60. My normal payments are $120 or less every 3 months. Help! Why was it charged an additionaly 13%?

The plans as stated are not including taxes. Are you located in a province where they charge 13% tax?

Exactly. You must have an Ontario phone number. The $120 are without tax and like with everything taxable in Canada, the taxes are added at the end.

But it is weird that your credit card on autopay was charged instead of using the balance you had in the account. If you pay with a voucher, you already paid taxes on those.

Not odd, if you make a one time payment with the credit card on record.

Oh, yes of course. My brain read "prepay" and didn't click. It thought "voucher"

Rewards that come into play during renewal time are not available early.  Since $120 is loaded into the account, what will happen is on renewal day, the rewards will be applied, then balance will be taken from the $120 funds on hand, leaving some funds left over for the next renewal.

Usually I'm charged $120 for autopay. The one time I prepaid in advance, I put down $120 on my credit card, and was billed with 13%.. but my account only shows the $120 balance.

 

I checked with my credit card and they said PM charged the $135.60. I look at the PM payment history, and it says billed $120. The 13% discrepancy is what throws me off.. as it hasn't shown this in the past.

How many times in the past? Have you checked your previous credit card transactions?

Wasn't there was a system glitch when the very first payment got charged without the taxes? I think I remember. So in your case it should be only the very first payment when you joined. After that every auto pay should be with taxes added.

 

And yes, every future payment will have taxes added to the plan costs. That's how it is supposed to be.

@911onFire yes @ute1978 has nailed it, there was a bug that prevented taxes being collected on your initial (activation time) 90 days payment.  $135.60 is the correct amount for a province with 13% combined tax rate, and will be what you are charged from now on if you stay on the same plan.  This is normal and expected.
