Over 25 area professionals enjoyed an informative panel discussing the latest updates on the Opportunity Zone program, a product of the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, created to spur investment in designated low-income communities. The creation of Qualified Opportunity Funds, the vehicle through which such investments are to be made, presents a tax incentive for real estate investors, private equity, venture capitalists, family offices, and individuals. NAI/Merin Hunter Codman was happy to host the event at our West Palm Beach office on Wednesday, November 28th.
Panelists from NAI/Merin Hunter Codman (Neil Merin), EisnerAmper (Steve Kreinik), Shutts & Bowen (Logan Gans) and UBS (Scott Martinho) discussed:

- Deferral of gains and basis step-ups
- Updated guidance from Treasury and IRS
- QOF interaction with other tax incentives
