TOURIST DEVELOPMENT TAX COLLECTIONS
Orange County Comptroller Phil Diamond announced today that tourist development tax (TDT) collections (resort tax) received by Orange County for the June 2020 were $2,629,400. That is an 89.2% decrease compared to last year’s collections.

On the bright side, while TDT collections remain at historically low levels, TDT collections increased compared to May 2020 collections. That increase is at least partially attributable to the re-openings of Universal, SeaWorld, and other attractions in June—although at limited capacities.
