Will I damage my credit score if I do not pay a portion of my bill that I am disputing?

While a card issuer is investigating a dispute, the issuer cannot report your account as delinquent if you have paid the undisputed portion or the minimum amount due. 

The card issuer can report to the credit reporting agency that there is a disputed amount on your bill.
