Opportunity Zone Basics
Defer Capital Gain
Investing into a Qualified Opportunity Zone enables you to defer your gain until 2026.
An investors sells a stock with a capital gain associated with it. If the gain associated with the stock is invested in a QOZ within 180 days of the transaction date, the taxes associated with the gain are deferred
Reduce Capital Gain
After a 5 year holding period, your invested capital gain tax is reduced by 10%
A QOZ investment was made using eligible capital gains. Upon holding the QOZ investment for 5 years, only 90% of the original gain is subject to taxation.
Eliminate Capital Gain
Long Term Benefit
After a 10 year holding period any gain from the QOZ investment becomes tax free.
If the QOZ investment was held for ten years, an investor can elect to increase the basis of the QOZ investment to its fair market value on the date of the sale or exchange thus making any QOZ gain tax free.
