Opportunity Zone Experts.
We connect investors
With the passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, Congress established an exciting new community investment tool called Opportunity Zones.
Designed to encourage long-term investments in low-income urban and rural communities nationwide, Opportunity Zones provide a tax incentive for investors to re-invest their unrealized capital gains into dedicated Opportunity Funds.

HOW TO INVEST
Three ways to save on capital gains.
A temporary deferral of inclusion in taxable income for capital gains reinvested into an Opportunity Fund. The deferred gain must be recognized on the earlier of these dates: December 31, 2026, or the date on which the opportunity zone investment is disposed.
Step-Up in Basis
For step-up in basis for capital gains reinvested in an Opportunity Fund, the basis is increased by 10% if the investment is held by the taxpayer for at least 5 years, and by an additional 5% if held for at least 7 years, thereby excluding up to 15% of the original gain from taxation.
You could receive a permanent exclusion from taxable income of capital gains from the sale or exchange of an investment in an Opportunity Fund if the investment is held for at least 10 years. This exclusion only applies to gains accrued after an investment in an Opportunity Fund.
