- Your final price for stuff you buy at Microsoft Store is the same regardless of how you pay for it. That includes taxes.
The exception would be if you live somewhere (e.g., Denmark and Sweden) where the tax is collected when the gift card is bought, then you won’t be charged tax when you buy stuff with it.
There are no fees for having a Microsoft account, putting money into it, or using it to buy stuff from us. In other words, it’s free!
