Recording of a 110-minute CPE webinar with Q&A
This webinar will provide tax advisers with a practical guide to understanding the tax incentives made available to investors under Section 1400Z. The panel will discuss the mechanics of Section 1400Z and the proposed regulations issued in October 2018. We will discuss how to qualify for tax benefits by investing in a QOF, the requirements to create and maintain QOFs and QOZ businesses, and key areas of the law that remain uncertain.
- Section 1400Z-2 opportunity zone provisions
- Processes and criteria designating QOZs
- Opportunity zone funds as the new class of investment vehicles and interests they can hold
- Specific tax incentives provided for in QOF investments
- Contrast incentives with qualified small business stock exclusions
- Filing and documentation requirements
The panel will review these and other key issues:
- What are QOZs and the eligibility requirements under IRC 1400Z?
- What are QOFs and QOZ businesses?
- How can taxpayers ensure the deferral or reduction of capital gains and the appreciation exclusion?
- Recent IRS guidance on gain deferral and the "substantially all" requirement imposed on QOZ businesses.
