In most cases, if you have submitted a proper billing dispute with the bank, you won’t have to pay for the portion of any payment that you believe is related to the disputed amount, while the dispute is being investigated. This includes finance charges related to the disputed amount and other charges that may be related to the disputed amount. You still will be responsible for any undisputed amounts though.
