by September 18, 2012 • 0 comments

Summer’s almost over and July was another banner bed tax revenue month.  April, May and June were record breaking months and July just barely cinched an improvement coming in at 1.59% over last year’s numbers.

A close look at the numbers.
  •  July 2012 – $3,009,385.67 – single point:  $601,877.13 – 1.59% up over previous year
  • July 2011 – $2,962,268.09 – single point:  $592,453.62 – 50.6% up over previous year
  • July 2010 – $1,967,020.33 – single point:  $393,404.07 – -14.6% up over previous year
  • July 2009 – $2,302,863.86 – single point:  $460,572.77 – 2.7% up over previous year
  • July 2008 – $1,345,540.63 – single point:  $448,513.54 – -3.2% up over previous year
  • July 2007 – $1,389,711.37 – single point:  $463,237.12
When considering gains, it’s always fun to look at where we are in comparison to where we were a few years ago.  For example, before the oil spill, many considered the 2008 summer tourism season a good baseline for strong tourism.  When compared to that year, 2012 is  34.2% up.

Industry wide in Bay County for July 2012, $60,187,713.40 was generated in room-night revenue.

The numbers from the previous months this year
  • June 2012 – $2,737,780.66 – up 19.88% over previous year
  • May 2012 – $1,408,512 – up 24.95% over previous year
  • April 2012 – $1,270,835.84 – up 4.45% over previous year
  • March 2012 – $1,769,821.69 – up 19.38% over previous year
