Seizing The Opportunity: Opportunity Zones 101


Opportunity Zones are designed to spur economic development in low-income communities nationwide by providing tax benefits to investors. All of the underlying incentives relate to the tax treatment of capital gains, and all are tied to the longevity of an investor’s stake in a qualified Opportunity Fund, providing the most upside to those who hold their investment for 10 years or more.

This panel will help potential investors understand how the program works, identify neighborhoods that qualify and locate assets within the designated areas in need of investment.
