Invest in Opportunity Zones

Introduced by the Tax Cut and Jobs Act of 2017, Opportunity Zones are census tracts designated by state governments based on their lower income demographics. The Program was created to incentivize investment within these communities by providing material tax benefits to U.S. investors who re-invest any form of capital gains into Opportunity Zone Funds. Investing in qualified Opportunity Zone Funds allow U.S. investors to (1) defer taxes on the original capital gain until the end of 2026, (2) reduce the amount of deferred taxes owed by up to 15%, and (3) eliminate tax on capital gains from the re-investment if held for 10 years. The Fund, in turn, must invest in qualified real estate or businesses within the opportunity zone.
