Sometimes noted as the “silver lining” in recent tax reform legislation, Opportunity Zones provide new tax benefits for equity investments in real estate and business located in designated distressed communities. Hear from a set of panelists who have been engaged with Opportunity Zones to learn how these deals can be structured, gain clarity on process, understand the various players, and gain an appreciation for the benefits to both the investor and the property. Our panel will also discuss compliance requirements as well as how different organizations/stakeholders are taking part in building this new investment ecosystem.
