Opportunity Zones will be one of the most transformative engines for economic growth, job creation, and innovation of our time.

Investors in Opportunity Zone can benefit from:

  • A tax deferral on invested capital gains
  • A step-up in basis on invested capital gains
  • Tax-free disposition of their Opportunity Zone investment
