Opportunity Zones

The Opportunity Zones program is a community development finance tool designed to incentivize long-term investments in economically distressed and capital starved communities by providing tax benefits to investors. Included in the Tax Cut and Jobs Act of 2017, the program allows individual and corporate investors to defer and reduce taxes on capital gains by reinvesting those proceeds into Opportunity Zones via Qualified Opportunity Funds. AMCREF offers Opportunity Zone advisory services to help connect sophisticated investors with eligible investment prospects. We also provide clients with preliminary underwriting, qualifications, and financial modeling. Clients include investors, developers, and fund managers.
