I have had the same plan for many years now, why are the taxes applied to the same base amount higher this month? (Ex: $45. plan + tax = 51.45, this month $45. plan + tax = 52.36)

What province are you in? Possible that tax changes went into effect. Also check page 3 and make sure that you didn't have overages or something of any kind happen.

I'm in New Brunswick & I have no overages or other extra charges applied. The only difference is the amount of taxes applied.

Have you carefully reviewed your pdf ebill?  have you even looked at your pdf ebill in the past?

There is a 911 fee in New brunswick of $0.53.  This 911 fee is not new

Also $45+HST (15%) does not equal $51.45.

New Brunswick increased their HST from 13% to 15% on July 1, 2016.
