An Opportunity Zone is an economically distressed community where private investments, under certain conditions, may be eligible for capital gain tax incentives.
These incentives are, in many cases, a vast improvement over the more well-known 1031 process. For example, the asset does not have to be a like-kind exchange, the capital gain funds can come from a variety of sources such as the sale of stocks or art- work.
Opportunity Zones were created under the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, to stimulate economic development and job creation, by incentivizing long- term investments in low-income neighborhoods.
