The federal Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 includes the Opportunity Zone program, which provides tax incentives to investors who fund businesses in underserved communities.
Paladino helps clients at the intersection of business, design, and environment, so we’ve released an ebook that makes the connection between successful developments, sustainability, and investor returns.
The Opportunity Zones ebook explains why the market for ESG funds leaves the door wide open for socially responsible assets to attract a growing market of sustainable investors; it demonstrates the link between sustainable development and investor ROI; and it lays out the pitch for green opportunity zone development for investors. The content is supported by case studies that show how powerful green building strategies can be in optimizing an investment.
With Opportunity Zones, investors can 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. In addition to the federal incentives for opportunity zones, counties can add incentives to draw investment interest.
While opportunity zones have been designated nationwide, Snohomish County, King County, Skagit County in Washington and the District of Columbia were each listed on the National Real Estate Investor’s assessment of the top 20 counties for Opportunity Zone investment. (source)
