WHAT ARE OPPORTUNITY ZONES?
Opportunity Zones are chosen by the governors of each state. They are low-income communities where government officials wish to attract investment by offering tax incentives to investors. The U.S. Congress created the zones under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act in 2017 to encourage investment. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has predicted that more than $100 billion worth of capital could be invested into Opportunity Zones.
