Tax Reform: Opportunity Zones

Webcast Overview:

The recent Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (Tax Act) added a new provision – Opportunity Zones (OZ) under section 1400Z – which allows the deferral and partial exclusion of certain gains from the sale or exchange of an asset if those gains are reinvested in a Qualified Opportunity Fund (Q Fund) within 180 days from the date of the sale or exchange. There is also the potential for exclusion of future gains from Q Fund investments held for at least 10 years.

KPMG LLP (KPMG) is pleased to invite you to a TaxWatch Webcast that will discuss the recent IRS/Treasury guidance relating to investing in Q Funds and the types of qualifying investments that can be made by Q Funds.  Professionals from KPMG’s Washington National Tax and State and Local Tax practices, including Rich Blumenreich, Joe Scalio,  Susan Reaman, and Ulrich Schmidt, will discuss:

  •  An overview of new section 1400Z
  • Highlights of the new section 1400Z regulations
  • Issues and planning opportunities under section 1400Z
  • State and local incentive and tax considerations
  •  Considerations for tax compliance and investor reporting for 2018.

Please join us for what promises to be an insightful and informative Webcast.
