Opportunity Zone Resource Center

Multistate-Tax-ServicesAmong the newest revelations within the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 are Opportunity Zones.  The program intends to entice long-term private investments in distressed low-income communities by offering significant federal tax incentives to investors. 

On this site, we strive to give taxpayers as much information as possible on this unique opportunity, of which anyone can take advantage. 

Below are some resources to help you further understand the program, processes, timelines and opportunities. Bookmark this page for future reference, as we plan to add more information as it becomes available.
