Opportunity Zones

Share & Print

As part of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, the new Qualified Opportunity Zone program was enacted to spur economic growth and investment in specified low-income communities.  To encourage private investment in these communities, the new program provides investors with significant tax benefits, including deferral of capital gains, partial elimination of deferred gains, and eliminating federal income tax for appreciation in these investments.  

In order to obtain these benefits, investors and qualified opportunity funds must meet numerous requirements set out in the statutes and regulations.  At Hill Ward Henderson, we have compiled a full-service team comprised of attorneys specializing in real estate, tax, corporate, finance, and construction to assist investors, fund sponsors, developers, and entrepreneurs to comply with these requirements.  Our full-service team guides our clients through each step in qualified opportunity zone transactions, including:

• Locating properties within qualified opportunity zones.
• Organizing qualified opportunity funds.
• Developing appropriate deal structures.
• Preparing documentation needed to complete the transaction.
