Maximizing Opportunity Zone Benefits

To obtain the maximum benefit still available from the Qualified Opportunity Zone program, taxpayers need to make qualified investments before December 31, 2021. Opportunity Zones offer tax benefits to business or individual investors who can elect to temporarily defer tax on capital gains if they timely invest those gain amounts in a Qualified Opportunity Fund (QOF).

What is a QOF?

A QOF is a corporation or partnership that has elected to be treated as such. It must be organized for the purpose of making investments in Qualified Opportunity Zone Business Property (QOZBP), must have at least 90% of its assets be QOZBP, be the original owner of the QOZBP or make significant improvements to the acquired property and meet a myriad of other rules and reporting requirements to ensure its investors get the full benefits of the program.

Assume you have a $100,000 gain, invest it in a QOF, and 10 years after your investment receive $300,000 on a subsequent sale. You’ll pay tax on $90,000 of gain on your 2026 tax return and nothing more.
