He recalled that since the beginning of June, teams of tourist inspectors, authorized to control private accommodation and collect the residence tax, have been on the field.
"We plan to have the controls in private accommodation by the end of September, while the hotels will be controlled throughout the whole year," Odzic said.
He recalled that the price of the residence tax remained unchanged and amounted to one euro, and revenue from it in the diameter of 80 percent to 20 percent is shared by the Tourist Organization Budva and the National Tourist Organization.
