Why Invest In Opportunity Zones?

"If the investor holds the investment in the Opportunity Fund for at least ten years, the investor would be eligible for an increase in its basis equal to the fair market value of the investment on the date that it is sold." - Dept of Treasury

There still remains some confusion around the classifications/requirements of opportunity zones. Being a newer tax law, transparency will likely take time to settle into place. Many legal and tax advisors are still wrapping their heads around this and what it means. We interviewed Attorney and CPA, Mark Kohler about opportunity zones. You can listen to the interview here.

According to BiggerPockets,

Experts suggest Opportunity Zones likely to perform will be near:

  • Areas that have experienced rapid population growth and neighborhood improvements in recent years

  • Public transportation or where expanded transportation is being added

  • Areas that have very expensive housing

  • Areas experiencing an affordability crisis

  • Major employment hubs and job centers

  • Areas experiencing rapid business growth
