Is it just capital gains? Wondering if it applies to any other forms of active or passive income.

How are profits from these investments treated?

Can you "swap til you drop" like with a 1031 exchange?




The current understanding is that you can continue investing so long as your money stays within a qualified opportunity fund. You have to make a substantial investment in the property or business, so simply buying land within an OZ won’t cut it. As a real estate developer, I can develop apartments, sell them upon stabilization, and redeploy that capital in another OZ investment.

I would also like some information about this.

+1 for investing in distressed areas; self-nominated with intent or otherwise.

If it's capital gains only, -1 on requiring sale of capital assets in order to be sufficiently incentivized. (Because then the opportunity to tax-advantagedly invest in Opportunity Zones is denied to persons without assets to liquidate; i.e. unequal opportunity).


Q: "Why don't I get the same tax-advantage for investing in a/my opportunity zone community?"

A [AFAIU]: "Because you don't have capital gains; only regular income" (~="Because you're not an accredited investor")


weird the UK VCT's EIS and SIS are open to anyone with the cash
