Jennings Strouss attorneys Christopher J. Rogers and Brett D. Siglin will be speaking at the State Bar of Arizona’s Business Law Section on “Opportunity Zone Incentive: Key Issues for Businesses, Investors, and Funds.”
WHAT YOU’LL LEARN:
The Tax Cuts & Jobs Act of 2017 established the Opportunity Zone Incentive to encourage capital investment in geographically designated “opportunity zones”. By investing capital gains into businesses located in opportunity zones, investors can defer and reduce their capital gains tax obligations, and grow their investments potentially tax free. Last month, the Department of Treasury released its long-anticipated final regulations governing the Opportunity Zone Incentive. This program will provide an overview of the Opportunity Zone Incentive, a discussion of the final regulations including key issues that should be top-of-mind for investors and businesses considering making use of the incentive. The presenters are active in the opportunity zone space, having formed double-digit numbers of opportunity zone funds and advising businesses attracting opportunity fund investments.
