Since its enactment in December 2017, the Opportunity Zone (OZ) tax benefit has emerged as a significant tool in encouraging businesses to invest in economically distressed areas in the U.S. While investors are taking advantage of the tax incentives, the regulatory paradigm is also evolving. In October 2018, proposed regulations were issued to provide guidance on how industry participants can move forward in this new landscape. As of this writing, the proposed rules on the eligibility of a business to take advantage of OZ benefits are already in the final stages of review.
Industry participants and their counsel should be aware of these regulatory developments to mitigate risks as they maximize OZ investment’s potentials.
The panel of key thought leaders and practitioners will offer a discussion of the regulatory and legislative developments in the OZ Investment Tax Regime. This Live Webcast aims to help firms and their counsel better understand the recent trends and developments surrounding this significant topic. Speakers will also present key strategies and tips on how to avoid potential risks and legal pitfalls.
Key topics include:
Opportunity Zone (OZ) Investment – Overview and Statistics
Current Rules and Regulations
Legislative and Regulatory Outlook
