Economic Opportunity Zone Strategies For Your Clients: A Powerful Tool For Private & Small Business Investments



Watch Now!
Recording and Slides are Available Here


The Economic Opportunity Zone rules that were enacted with the 2017 Tax Reform Act were very difficult to decipher, and many tax and estate planning professionals are behind the ball on how to help their clients defer or avoid capital gains taxes by making investments in these now vibrant communities. 

In April of 2019, the IRS issued a second set of Proposed Regulations, which clarified many of the outstanding questions that taxpayers and tax professionals had, and academicians and practitioners have done a very good job of deciphering the rules, just in time for year-end 2019 income tax planning season. 

Want to learn more about this exciting topic? Join Alan Gassman and John Beck for the 90-minute “straight to the point” LISI Webinar that will cover strategies for qualifying an Economic Opportunity Zone investment before December 31, 2019. Their webinar will provide a simple and straightforward explanation in covering planning strategies and important nuances with respect to Economic Opportunity Zones, and how to invest in them. Best of all, the webinar will include a PowerPoint deck that can be used to explain these rules to clients and colleagues! 

Here’s a small sample of what the webinar will cover: 

·      What is an Economic Opportunity Zone, and what kind of private investments can be made by individuals and entities? 

·      How to structure an LLC or other business or investment entity to qualify. 

·      Timing issues relating to the initial investment in the Economic Opportunity Zone, and how long the investment must be held. 

·      Timing issues related to partnerships, S corporations, and the “1231 property trap.” 

·      An explanation of the “Substantial Improvement” and “Original Use” Tests. 

·      How to qualify a property that was purchased before December 31, 2017. 

·      The use of subsidiaries to ease the investment requirements. 

·      How to use the working capital exception to avoid investing 100% of the assets of the Economic Opportunity Zone company for its initial 31 months of existence. 

·      The rules that apply to leasing property versus purchasing property in an Economic Opportunity Zone. 

·      How to treat 1231 gains depreciation recapture, and how it interacts with the Economic Opportunity Zone program. 

·      Interaction with state law and possible added benefits. 

·      How to use the working capital exception to avoid investing 100% of the assets of the Economic Opportunity Zone company for its initial 31 months of existence.
