Holland & Knight Program
Washington, DC 20006
Please join Holland & Knight attorneys Kristin DeKuiper, Alan Cohen and Nicole Elliott for "Opportunity Zones: What You Can Do Now in Light of Recent and Expected Guidance." Our interactive presentation will highlight the clarifications provided by the federal government regarding this powerful tax incentive, what remains a work in progress, and what you can do now. The discussion will be followed by a cocktail reception where you will be able to speak and network with our attorneys and other professionals from across the Washington, D.C., area.
In October 2018, the U.S. Department of the Treasury and the IRS released their much anticipated Opportunity Zones guidance, further clearing the way for the successful creation and investment in Qualified Opportunity Funds. On the whole, this guidance was welcomed by stakeholders who are pleased to see the new tax provisions interpreted in a manner designed to spur economic growth in low-income communities. The comment period for the October guidance has expired and further guidance is expected. In the meantime, a framework for moving forward is developing, although obstacles remain.
Our attorneys will analyze the latest developments and discuss some of the hot topics about the incentive, including:
- Tax benefits for investors
- Qualified Opportunity Funds
- Qualified Opportunity Zone Businesses
We hope you are able to join us for this highly informative presentation and cocktail reception.
