Looking for a better way to diversify your portfolio?

Buying stocks, bonds, or property aren’t your only options.

Many of today’s top investors are turning to a newer investment strategy: Opportunity Zones.

What is an Opportunity Zone?

In an effort to drive economic development in low-income neighborhoods, the Tax Cut and Jobs Act of 2017 (TCJA) created Opportunity Zones (OZ), or “O-Zones” for short.

These areas of the U.S. ⁠— both rural and burgeoning lower-income urban communities — have historically been capital-deprived, but have potential for future growth.

In these areas, qualifying investments ⁠— or those that have “substantial improvement” or “original use” ⁠— receive special material tax benefits.

And it’s these perks investors should know about.

Why Should You Care About an Opportunity Zone?

Opportunity Zones are a powerful investment vehicle for many reasons.

First, you can re-invest any form of capital gains into a Qualified Opportunity Fund (QOF). These types of funds invest 90% of their assets in qualified Opportunity Zones.

Because of that, you can defer your taxes on your original capital gain until the end of 2026.

You can also reduce your original capital gains taxes by up to 15% when you invest in an Qualified Opportunity Fund for at least 7 years. After the 10-year mark, you completely eliminate the tax on new capital gains from your Qualified Opportunity Fund investment.

Benefits Associated with Opportunity Zones

Compared to a typical portfolio, you have the potential to double your after-tax profits by investing in Opportunity Zones.

And you can invest using long-term or short-term capital gains from any source, including the sale of stocks, bonds, and property.

As long as you re-invest these gains within six months of realization, you’ll qualify for this incredible investment option.
