My bill shows the amount of fees I have paid for the entire year. What's that about?


Card issuers are required to let you know the total amount of fees that you have paid during the course of the year. 

Fees include any annual fee you pay, late fees, overlimit fees, and fees you pay when you get cash or write a check using your credit card account, as well as any other charges (other than interest) imposed as part of the credit card agreement, including charges for credit insurance and similar products.
