Designed to encourage private investment into low-income urban and rural communities, the Opportunity Zone program is one of several important provisions signed into law through the Federal Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. Investors who invest realized capital gains in Qualified Opportunity Funds are able to defer paying taxes on these gains, and they receive a reduction in the amount of future capital gains owed, depending on how long they hold their investment in a Fund.
- Taxpayer realizes capital gain
- Taxpayer reinvests capital gains into project via Qualified Opportunity Fund
- Taxpayer receives deferral on capital gains, receives step-up reduction depending on holding period
