New regulations for Opportunity Zone investment are here. The Opportunity Zone tax incentive was created as part of the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act to encourage investment in struggling communities. New rules for the incentive, provided by the U.S. Treasury Department, strike a balance between the interests of potential investors and the interests of the economically distressed communities the program was created to serve.
Join the Kansas City Business Journal on May 14th for a panel discussion that will touch on what investors, developers and business operators need to know when investing in Opportunity Zones. The panelists will discuss the opportunities and hazards associated with Opportunity Zones, as well as what the newest round of guidance from the U.S. Department of the Treasury means.
