Brunswick County saw a 13.85 percent increase in accommodations tax revenue in May over the previous year, but the total for June will tell a more complete story, officials say.

Tourism officials say several factors, including the fact the month had five weekends in it compared to four last year, contributed to the increase. Because June had four instead of the five from 2007, combining the two months’ receipts will give Tourism Development Authority officials a better idea of how the 2008 rental season fared, TDA executive director Mitzi York said this week.
