Eliminate Capital Gain

Long Term Benefit

After a 10 year holding period any gain from the QOZ investment becomes tax free.

Example 

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.
