  • Investment in Opportunity Zones

    Opportunity Zones

    In December 2017, President Trump signed The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act into law enacting a national Opportunity Zone program designed to provide significant real estate and other investors significant federal tax incentives to invest in 8,700 historically distressed, state-designated neighborhoods throughout the United States. Specifically, the federal tax incentives provided through the Opportunity Zone program may permit an investor not only to defer present taxation on any of its currently realized and recognized capital gains, but also to reduce the actual amount of capital gains ultimately realized in the future. In addition, for certain investments held for more than 10 years, any and all gains on such investment amounts will be 100% tax-free for federal income tax purposes, to the extent initially comprised of deferred capital gains.
