Course Description

This course introduces Tax Professionals to the §4OOZ-I provisions for designation of "Qualified Opportunity Zones" (QOZ) and §14OOZ-2 provisions for special rules for capital gains invested in opportunity zones. The presentation will discuss the treatment of the gains dealing with elections and deferral of gain invested in "opportunity zone property". The presentation will discuss the determination of basis and define what a "Qualified Opportunity Fund" is as well as describing a "qualified opportunity zone business". The presentation will also discuss §1397B Nonrecognition of Gain on the rollover of empowerment zones investments and holding period requirements.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this presentation, the Tax Professional will have learned the basics of the tax provisions addressing the federal income tax benefits of investing in Opportunity Zone funds and the workings of an Opportunity Zone investment. The participant will have an understanding of the benefits of deferral of gains realized from the investment in a qualified opportunity fund, the calculation of basis and the possible exclusion of gain.

For purposes of Empowerment Zone investments, the participant will learn about the §1397B benefits of nonrecognition of gain available when a taxpayer invests in Opportunity Zones.
