Investor guide to opportunity zones
A RealCrowd audiocast
The 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act created a new investment vehicle intended to stimulate economic growth in distressed communities. Qualified opportunity zones (QOZs) are pre-selected areas around the United States where investors can hold capital gains for preferential tax treatment while struggling communities can benefit from an influx of development and funding.
“The real estate investment community’s going to be the first, and one of the larger, beneficiaries of the opportunity zone because it just marries up.” ~ Troy Merkel
