Opportunity Zones are a new concept recently enacted in the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. The program is designed to incentivize patient capital investments in low-income communities nationwide that have been cut off from capital and experienced a lack of business growth. There are three types of tax incentives that relate to the treatment of capital gains, each of the incentives are connected to the longevity of an investor’s stake in a qualified Opportunity Fund that provides the most upside to those who hold their investment for 10 years or more.
Do you have an Opportunity Zone in your community? This half-day workshop will help local leaders understand how Opportunity Zones can benefit their community and learn how to develop a marketing strategy to attract the type of development they want.
