SCR Breakfast: Qualified Opportunity Zone

Join us on October 23 from 7:30 to 9 a.m. at Ridlgea Country Club to hear more about the Qualified Opportunity Zone program.

The Qualified Opportunity Zone (“QOZ”) program was created by the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act to encourage economic growth in underserved communities through tax incentives for investors who utilize “Opportunity Funds” to invest in the Zones. Along with tax benefits, it presents opportunities for real estate investment and development in those communities.

We will be joined by Brenda Hicks-Sorensen, Assistant Director of the Economic Development Department, and other industry leaders to generate discussion around QOZs, their associated QO funds and the benefit to both community and investor.
