Local Opportunities for Opportunity Zones

An overview of opportunity zones was presented to the NAIOP community in October and there have been many requests for an additional meeting to discuss specific examples and zones.

Opportunity Zones are a hot news topic after the Treasury Department’s recent release of proposed regulations, and present significant tax savings possibilities for local real estate investment.  Created as part of the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, Opportunity Zones are low-income census tracts designated by the governor of each state.  There are over 8,700 Opportunity Zones to date, spanning all fifty states, the District of Columbia, and five U.S. territories, including 514 in New York State and 43 in Monroe and Erie County alone. 

Join us as we discuss how investing Opportunity Zones can significantly defer, reduce, or even eliminate federal capital gains tax liability and how real estate professionals can use this program as a tool to attract investors, projects, and tenants in local Opportunity Zone communities.
