Overview of an Opportunity Zone Fund 

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 created the Qualified Opportunity Zone (QOZ) program as a method to provide potentially significant tax benefits to investors who reinvest capital gains into long-term investments located in so-called “Opportunity Zones” as designated by each state and approved by the Treasury Department.

The QOZ program is suited for investors who have substantial capital gains and a desire to realize them in a highly tax-efficient manner. Investors are generally able to defer federal taxes on any recent capital gain until December 31, 2026, reduce that tax payment by up to 15% and pay as little as zero taxes on potential profits from the Opportunity Zone Fund if the investment is held for ten years.
