Breaking News: The Qualified Opportunity Fund Regulations Have Just Been Issued!

In this exclusive LISI webinar, Jim Weller will discuss IRC §1400Z and the new qualified opportunity fund regulations that were just issued.

IRC §1400Z was designed to encourage private investment in low-income communities. By investing gain from the sale or exchange of any property to an unrelated party in a Qualified Opportunity Fund, a taxpayer can defer the tax on the gain.  This tax-deferral is reminiscent of the tax-deferral currently permitted for the like-kind exchange of real estate, but IRC §1400Z takes the tax benefits a couple of steps further. 

Depending on the holding period for the investment in a Qualified Opportunity Fund, a portion of the deferred gain that will eventually be realized can be eliminated, and the appreciation of the investment from the date of purchase will not be taxed when the investment is sold. 

In this presentation, Jim will cover:

    • The newly released regulations

    • Introduction to Qualified Opportunity Funds

    • Designation of Qualified Opportunity Zones

    • Types of Qualified Opportunity Zone Property

    • What constitutes a Qualified Opportunity Zone Business

    • Qualifying to Invest in Qualified Opportunity Funds

    • Tax Benefits

    • Death of the Investor
