Tax receipts generated from hotel occupancy in East Baton Rouge Parish increases over 2013

BATON ROUGE, La. - Taxe receipts generated from hotel occupancy in East Baton Rouge Parish jumped by more than 35 per cent in May, and by 12 per cent in June over the same periods in 2013.

The occupancy tax is the sole source of funding for Visit Baton Rouge, which receives 3 per cent of receipts. Visit Baton Rouge President and CEO Paul Arrigo tells The Advocate (http://bit.ly/1zsPEaQ ) the May and June figures reflect the beginning of several major events and film productions this summer that helped boost the local travel industry.
