Qualified Opportunity Zones (QOZ) were created through the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act to encourage investors with capital gains to invest in low-income areas by providing tax benefits such as capital gains tax deferral, reduction of that capital gain, and a potential tax free-exit on the sale of the investment property if held for 10 years. This is the most exciting federal tax incentive programs to have been enacted in many years and while it likely will lead to greater investments in Opportunity Zones, there are a number of technical issues that need to be navigated to obtain these benefits.
Join a panel of key thought leaders and professionals assembled by The Knowledge Group as they provide the audience with an in-depth analysis of QOZ investments as well as the recent updates and developments surrounding the topic. Speakers will also discuss the best practices to overcome the challenges while maximizing opportunities.
This live webcast will discuss the following key provisions:
• Qualified Opportunity Zones: A Primer
• New Guidance on Opportunity Zones
• Recent Updates and Developments
• Maximizing Opportunities
• Legal Risks and Challenges
• Best Practices
