I noticed when i do a mock booking for my sailing it says the taxes, fees,etc is $273.94. On my invoice and e-docs I only paid $251.70 with this note:
I know from the past that carnival gives a credit if the taxes are less then what you paid. Does this mean when i board the ship in 2 weeks i will see a $22.25 charge on my sail n sign card?
CCL does have the right to increase your taxes. However, I've heard of people (including us) getting credit for lower taxes but have not heard of anyone complaining that they raised their taxes. I'm sure there would have been posts on CC if that happened.

Right you will only be charged the diff if you change your booking. This does include doing a price drop! I got a $50 price drop once, but the taxes & fees had gone up like $17, so the price drop ended up only being $33 instead of the $50 I was excpecting, but o well, $33 was still better than nothing!
