Emerald Coast Opportunity Zone

What is an opportunity Zone?

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 was signed into law on December 22, 2017.  The Opportunity Zone program was included in that act, which was designed to provide tax incentives to investors who fund businesses in under served communities.

Investors are able to defer paying taxes on capital gains that are invested in Qualified Opportunity Funds that in turn are invested in distressed communities designated as Opportunity Zones by the governor of each state.  Up to 25 percent of the low-income census tracts in each state can be designated as Opportunity Zones.
