Tax Reform’s New Incentives: Opportunity Zone Provisions for Indian Country
February 15, 2018
The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act included a tax incentive, known as Opportunity Zones that if taken advantage of and acted upon quickly could prove beneficial for Indian County. This new community development program encourages long-term investments in low-income communities by allowing investors to re-invest unrecognized capital gains into an Opportunity Zone Fund itself if held for 10 years.
In this webinar, our panelists discussed:
- How Opportunity Zones are nominated and designated
- How Opportunity Zone Funds may be formed to direct capital to Indian Country and other distressed areas
- How investors can obtain tax benefits for investments in Opportunity Zones
