Event Summary

It's no secret that "Opportunity Zones" is the most talked about subject these days short of Amazon HQ2. However, most CRE professionals have no idea what is actually going on.

The

Opportunity Zones

tax incentive was included in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act President Donald Trump signed into law in December 2018. The law gives tax benefits to investors that place unrealized capital gains into Opportunity Funds, which then invest in Opportunity Zones, a host of census tracts local governments decide have the most need and can best support the investment.



At Bisnow's 2019 NYC Opportunity Zones Summit, we'll dive into every facet of Opportunity Zones and Opportunity Zone Funds to ready you for the investment

possibilities in the Greater New York City area.
