I have no tab with koodo and haven't had one before.
Added to cart an LG G5.
11$ tab for 24 months. No down payment.
Total monthly tab charge $16.95
Is that a one time fee or am I actually being 'taxed' almost 6$?
When I would assume it would be $12.43

Could be a mix up and the system didn't add the extra discount or something. It says 360 on tab medium so 16.95 should be the correct amount. Where did you see 11?

Some customers have personalized offers, so the OP may be right. I don't know whats the issue though.

Thank you for the replies. Very appreciated 
Well I have an extra 140$ discount, (star thing in the corner of my page) (total discount of 444$ off a 704$ phone) so it works out on tab large to be 11$ a month and no down payment. So the system is automatically taxing me for a typical 15$ tab large? I'd have to sign up for it and hope that it gets fixed when I dispute it?

You are right, it is medium.
That would make the most sense. As long as the money isn't being thrown away and still being put towards the phone, then its perfect.
Just that the system is telling me 11$ a month so it instantly concerned me when I saw that monthly charge!

It's a declining balance.  Once it reaches $0, no more tab will be charged

Question about this, because I had a similar situation (personalized offer). I had the option of getting the tab discount on the upfront payment on a tab small, or knock off a couple bucks per month on tab medium ($13 instead of $15). I went with tab small (more flexibility for me) and didn't mind paying some moneys up front, but what about had I taken tab medium? Would it be tab $13 per month or $15 per month but run out sooner?

Your monthly Tab charge is normally rounded up to the nearest dollar.  With these "personalized offers", this might not be happening
