Qualified Opportunity Zone Fund CPA Intake Sheet
While the tax and ROI benefits of Opportunity Zone investments can be immense, some of the details within the tax code can become pretty complex. We’ve created an intake sheet designed to make the lives of both investors and CPAs a little easier.
The Magic Date: December 31, 2019
To receive the the maximum benefit of an Opportunity Zone Investment, legislation requires an OZ Investment be completed by December 31, 2019.
However, if the original capital gain (from some other asset unrelated to the OZ investment) stems from the sale of “real or depreciable property” (buildings, land, most aspects of a business sale, etc.), then it is considered a 1231 capital gain. 1231 capital gains are “netted” against other 1231 capital losses/gains (and other types of cap gains). The IRS has taken the position that netting cannot occur prior to 12/31; therefore, 1231 capital gains cannot be realized prior to 12/31.
The Solution: Once we collectively figure out how much the investor wants to invest, they “loan” the investment to the fund and we convert it to a fund investment on 12/31/2019 – while every once else is busy celebrating New Year’s Eve!
