QUALIFIED OPPORTUNITY ZONES:
WHAT ESTATE PLANNERS NEED TO KNOW
Sponsored by Carter Financial Management
The 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act created a new tax incentive provision that is intended to promote investment in economically distressed communities, referred to as “Qualified Opportunity Zones.” Through this program, investors can achieve significant tax benefits: (1) deferral of gain on the disposition of property to an unrelated person until December 31, 2026 so long as the gain is reinvested in a Qualified Opportunity Fund (QOF); (2) elimination of up to 15% of that gain; and (3) potential elimination of tax on gains associated with the appreciation in value of a QOF. This presentation will focus on the critical tax rules that estate planners need to know in advising clients on investing in and establishing QOFs. Particular emphasis will be placed on the estate planning challenges and opportunities that can be presented through such investments. Benetta P. Jenson is a Managing Director and Midwest Wealth Advisor at J.P. Morgan Private Bank based in Chicago. She assists clients with the development of comprehensive, generational wealth transfer planning strategies. Benetta also frequently speaks and writes nationally on trust and estate planning topics.
