The Opportunity Zones tax incentive was established by Congress in the 2017 Tax Cut and Jobs Act as an innovative approach to spur long-term private sector investments in low-income urban and rural communities nationwide. We believe this to be an extremely unique investment opportunity for qualified clients. Capital gains deferral and advantages are a substantial part of the tax benefits investors may receive.
