Many businesses and investors may be positioned to pursue a unique investment opportunity through the Qualified Opportunity Zones program, which offers significant tax incentives for eligible funds aimed at projects in economically distressed urban and rural communities.

Join Shipman & Goodwin attorneys for this complimentary webinar as they provide an overview of the new program’s rules, tax benefits, eligibility requirements, exemptions and compliance requirements. Presenters will also review recent guidance from the IRS and U.S. Treasury Department and provide useful guidance on establishing Qualified Opportunity Funds. The Opportunity Zones program, included in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, is designed to encourage investment in areas in need of economic development and job creation.
