#68: Investing 101 – Opportunity Zones

What are opportunity zones? Where are they? How do you invest in them? Tracey Wilson of IPX 1031 is an expert on the subject and has been advising clients on this new investment avenue since its formation in 2017. This new tax code aims to enrich 8,762 government identified underdeveloped areas across the nation by attracting investors with tax breaks.

Choosing to invest your money in an opportunity zone, either from a real estate sale or other stock funds, allows the Buyer specific tax benefits for years to come. Deferring capital gains tax, using gains from a previous sale only (saving your basis), and how to decide between an opportunity fund versus a 1031 exchange, are just a few of the topics our host Kyle Malnati and Tracey discuss in this tactical episode.
