Tue, 27 Jul 2010 02:06:36 GMT —
Numbers released by the City of Myrtle Beach show the tourism tax is bringing in 32 percent more money than expected.
The latest quarterly earnings total $4.8 million.
Since the one-cent-per-dollar sales tax went into effect in August 2009, the city has collected more than $14 million.
Most of the money goes to the Chamber of Commerce for out-of-market tourism promotion.
