The federal “Investing in Opportunity Act” enabled the U.S. Department of the Treasury to designate 8,672 low-income census tracts nominated by governors across America as “Opportunity Zones." Individual and corporate investors whose funds are subject to capital gains tax liability can put those monies into “Opportunity Funds,” which invest in real estate projects, economic development and business initiatives in these Opportunity Zones. These investors obtain deferrals, reductions and exclusions from capital gains liability for long-term capital investments in underserved communities. There is an estimated $6.1 trillion in unrealized capital gains funding in America that could be invested in the coming years, which could help to spur revitalization in communities with low access to capital.
