About the Program

It’s been three years since the opportunity zones (OZ) tax incentive program began, with the IRS and Treasury Department’s final regulations following the initial blueprint laid out in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. Under the now well-established framework, countless deals have been closed and real estate and business investors have learned multiple lessons along the way. Join us for a look back on the program’s successes and hurdles from 2018 to 2020, and a look forward to what the future holds.
