The 2017 Tax Cuts & Jobs Act created a new incentive for investment in low-income communities known as “qualified opportunity zones” that has the potential to be a win-win for investors and low-income communities. This seminar will provide an explanation of the opportunity zone program and recent developments that can provide significant tax benefits.

The seminar will cover:

  • An overview of the opportunity zone program and the tax benefits
  • Opportunity Fund requirements and structures
  • Important issues relating to investments in real estate opportunity zones and operating businesses in the zones
  • Inclusion events for deferred gain and exit strategies

Who should attend?
Investors, developers, fund managers, community development practitioners, attorneys and taxpayers with unrealized capital gains.
