Intended to spur job creation and economic development in distressed communities, the U.S. government has added Opportunity Zones to the tax code under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. The investment vehicle used is a Qualified Opportunity Fund (QOF) which can be a corporation or partnership. Investing in O-Zones benefits investors through tax incentives such as tax deferment.
However, amidst the potential tax savings, the program comes with possible risks. As O-Zone investments gain momentum this 2019, investors and counsel should be well-versed with the regulatory and economic updates to ensure that opportunities are maximized and pitfalls are avoided.
