Opportunity Zones are a new federal tax incentive program designed to attract long term capital to underserved areas through robust federal tax incentives. Fourteen census tracts in Montgomery County have been designated Opportunity Zones. A broad range of businesses, real property and personal property, which are substantially located in Opportunity Zones, are qualified for investment from Opportunity Funds. The guiding principles of Opportunity Zones are simplicity, scalability and flexibility. There is no cap on the amount of private equity that can be invested. The program is projected to become fully operational in early 2019 with Opportunity Funds ramping up investment in the next 2-3 years. There is no public application process for Opportunity Funds investment. It is a private capital allocation. Please consult with a qualified professional services firm to decide if the Opportunity Zones program is an appropriate tool for an investment.
