We received official word from Rogers that with new sales tax rate increase to 8.5% in Quebec, the new rate will apply to all Rogers services.
Quebec Sales Tax Rate Increase
Please note that on January 1 2011, the Quebec Government will increase the QST to 8.5%, which apply to all Rogers services.
In other words, expect your wireless (and other Rogers services) bill to be slightly higher in the coming months. This also means that devices, such as the iPhone, purchased at retail will also cost a little bit more.
We have not received official word yet from the other Canadian wireless carriers such as Bell and Telus, but since this is a sales tax increase, it is likely to affect the customers of these companies as well.
