Qualified Opportunity Zone Funds

An Intriguing Niche Tax Advantage Investment Program

The Tax Cut and Jobs Act of 2018 contains provisions for reduction of capital gains where qualifying funds are invested for long term in qualifying investments in qualifying areas. Steve Wilson and Mike Jakimzak will provide insights about legislation and compliance issues, how investors qualify for the program and the opportunity for gain deferral and potential exclusion from future taxation.
