Qualified Opportunity Funds: Tax Strategies and Opportunities for Real Estate and Other Investors

The 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act created a new incentive for investment in qualified low-income communities known as qualified opportunity zones (“QOZs”).

The new Tax Code provisions, under Sections 1400z-1 and 1400z-2 of the Internal Revenue Code, are designed to promote long-term growth in economically distressed areas by providing special tax benefits to taxpayers that would otherwise recognize taxable gain from a sale or exchange, provided that the amount of such gain is reinvested into special entities known as Qualified Opportunity Funds (“QO Funds”).
