Opportunity Zones

Opportunity Zones

A new economic development program to encourage long-term investments in low-income areas with benefits for qualified investors

Overview
The passing of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 created Opportunity Zones – a new tax-deferral opportunity for recently realized capital gains. The law passed in December of 2017 and allowed for state governors to designate specific census tracts, called Opportunity Zones, that have potential for revitalization.

Key Benefits
By adhering to certain guidelines, investors can take realized capital gains from other investments and put them into an Opportunity Zone or Qualified Opportunity Zone fund that targets assets in these zones and receive a combination of:

  • Tax Deferral
  • Tax Reduction
  • Tax Forgiveness

Not surprisingly, Opportunity Zones have peaked the interest of family offices, high-net-worth individuals, and large private bank clients.
