Business Trends: Tax Update: Qualified Opportunity Zones – Understanding the Opportunity

Course Description
The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act gives taxpayers a new planning tool, Section 1400Z, for deferring and reducing capital gains that are reinvested in a Qualified Opportunity Fund (QOF). A QOF is an investment vehicle designed to invest in property or businesses located in designated low-income areas throughout the U.S., the District of Columbia and U.S. territories. These areas are defined as Qualified Opportunity Zones (QOZs). Potential tax benefits for investing into a QOF include the deferral and partial exclusion of capital gains and the permanent exclusion from taxable income of any appreciation in the QOF interest if it is held for at least 10 years.

Join us to learn more about the goals of the QOZ program, the potential tax incentives, requirements for qualification based on recently proposed regulations, and strategies for investing in and exiting a QOF.

Learning Objectives:

  • Review the background of the QOZ program and potential tax incentives
  • Outline the requirements for operating a QOF
  • Discuss the types of property or businesses a QOF can invest in
  • Identify ways to optimize the tax benefits when exiting a QOF
