It's not clear what you expect. The mask of $0.00 means that that is the only value that is legal. Try $#.##.
Also you must conform to the mask. Manually it will beep at you, Programatically it raises an error.

So you need
txtRefundGst.Text = "$0.00"

If you are only going to fill it programatically, it would be easier to have a blank Mask.

The format will still work.
txtRefundGst.Text = 1.234
will display as $1.23 if you keep the Format as "$#,##0.00"

If not, you might want to use a mask that is at least as long as the Format:
Would be a good match.
