A NEW ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT TOOL DESIGNED TO SPUR INVESTMENT IN DISTRESSED AREAS
By rolling over capital gains taxes into a qualified opportunity zone fund (QOF), investors can defer, reduce, and even eliminate any capital gains.
Inital Tax Deferral
Defer capital gains taxes from initial sale of stocks, bonds, real estate, businesses, and other assets by investing in a QOF.
Reduce capital gains taxes by 10% or 15% if the investment is held for 5 years or 7 years, respectively.
Exclude (forgive) capital gains taxes from QOF appreciation, if held for at least 10 years.
A NEW INVESTMENT APPROACH YIELDING MAJOR TAX INCENTIVES
The Opportunity Zone program was created as part of the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) to stimulate long-term private investments in low-income urban and rural communities across the United States. By providing tax benefits to investors, this new economic development tool is designed to incentivize investment and promote economic growth in distressed areas. For the first time in history, accredited investors with any capital gain can roll their gain into a development in an opportunity zone.
INVESTING IN AMERICA
More than 8,700 Opportunity Zones have been designated across the United States and are intended to foster long-term private sector investments in low-income communities.
