Opportunity Zones: Whose opportunity is it?

The 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act established a new community development program designating funding to areas called Opportunity Zones. Investors have their eyes on these profitable areas and forming new capital funds. Now, community leaders are asking if a reduction for taxpayers with high capital gains will actually benefit lower-income communities? Learn about the current status of Opportunity Zones and how to steer that capital towards worthwhile projects.
