The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 enacted the Opportunity Zone program, which creates a new community investment tool designed to drive long-term capital to eligible low-income urban and rural communities throughout the nation. It provides tax incentives for investors who re-invest their unrealized capital gains into Opportunity Funds which are dedicated to investing into Opportunity Zones.
