What are Qualified Opportunity Zones?

Qualified Opportunity Zones were created as part of 2017’s Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, under a new provision in section 1400Z. The Qualified Opportunity Zones are formally designated low-income population census tracts that were nominated by the Governor’s office for each state, chosen from a list compiled using U.S. Treasury guidelines.

Currently, there are over 8,700 Qualified Opportunity Zones throughout the United States and its territories and can account for up to 25% of designated census tracts in any given state. Qualified Opportunity Zones include urban, rural, and suburban areas, as well as locations zoned for commercial, residential, and industrial development.

The current Qualified Opportunity Zone designations will remain in effect until December 31, 2028. The provision intends to serve as a catalyst for economic investment in low-income and under-developed communities by offering preferential tax treatment for capital gains invested in a Qualified Opportunity Fund such as Great Basin Opportunity Zone Fund
