Previous month sales and MTD Last Year sales not working

Hi All,

In my data model I have created a Date Table. I imported my FACT Table from SSAS. My fact has a "charge_create_Date" heirarchy. I joined both the tables on date. But when I go ahead and create the following measures I am getting the wrong values 

.Please advice where I am doing wrong.

LM Charges = 
    SUM('Transactions'[Set 01 Charge Amount]),

Charges MTD LY = 
    TOTALMTD ( SUM ('Transactions'[Set 01 Charge Amount] ), 'Date'[Date]),
