What are Opportunity Zones?

The Opportunity Zones Program

As part of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) of 2017, the Opportunity Zones program was created to increase investment in economically distressed communities.

  • As part of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) of 2017, the Opportunity Zones program was created to increase investment in economically distressed communities.

  • Opportunity Zones are designed to spur economic development by providing tax benefits to investors.

  • The program provides tax incentives to funds that invest in historically distressed neighborhoods throughout the U.S. and investors can defer tax on any prior gains invested in a Qualified Opportunity Fund (QOF) until the earlier of the date on which the investment in a QOF is sold or exchanged, or December 31, 2026.

  • The program provides preferential capital gains treatment for investments within designated low-income census tracts.

  • An Opportunity Fund may be organized as a corporation or partnership whose assets comprise at least 90% qualified Opportunity Zone assets, representing investment in Opportunity Zones

  • Investors can defer tax on any prior gains invested in a Qualified Opportunity Fund (QOF) until the earlier of the date on which the investment in a QOF is sold or exchanged, or December 31, 2026.

  • If the QOF investment is held for longer than 5 years there is a 10% exclusion of the deferred gain. Hold the investment in the fund for more than 7 years, the 10% becomes 15%.  If the investor holds the investment in the Opportunity Fund for at least ten years, the investor is eligible for an increase in basis of the QOF investment equal to its fair market value on the date that the QOF investment is sold or exchanged.
