Spatial Join Multiple Polygons joined to a Point

I am busy spatially joining the attributes from a polygon layer (regional ecosystem information) to a point layer (scat survey sites). When I complete the spatial join (join features based on polygons which the points lie completely within) I find that the attributes from multiple polygons are joined to each of the points when the point only lies within one polygon (e.g. point 1 = vegtype1(wetland) AND vegtype2(non-remnant)). I suspect this may be due to the fact that the layers have different coordinate systems. I have attempted to project the layers in one coordinate system and reduce the XY tolerance however these changes don't seem to help. Does anyone have any suggestions.
