The Incredible Benefits for Investors:

Initial Tax Benefits & Deadlines

A profit resulting from the sale of an asset is typically taxed at a maximum capital gains rate of 20%. However, taxpayers now have the option of deferring payments of that tax until year-end 2026 by reinvesting those profits in an Opportunity Zone.

*Congress dictated that all capital gains are eligible, but unique situations could vary based on the taxpayer’s individual circumstances. A CPA who specializes in Opportunity Zone rules and effects could help mitigate any potential risks.

Original Capital Gain Tax Reduction

If the investor stays invested for five years, their original capital gains tax liability is reduced by 10%. If invested for seven years, the investor receives another 5% tax break on the original amount deferred for a total 15% tax break.

 

Capital Gains Tax on Fund Elimination

If the investment is held for at least 10 years, then the sale of the Opportunity Zone fund will be treated by the IRS as 100% tax-free. While OZs are scheduled to expire by year-end 2028, investments made prior to this expiration date will continue to accrue tax-free gains until 2047.

A Hypothetical: What The Nest Opportunity Fund Could Look Like For You

On July 1, 2019, Ivan sells his S Corp business for a $1 million profit. His total tax liability is $288,000, assuming:

  • A 20% long-term capital gains rate
  • A 3.8% Medicare surtax
  • 5% in state taxes

Instead of paying this tax to the IRS on his 2019 return, Ivan invests his profits into the fund.

Here’s How His Situation Could Play Out

In short, Ivan maximized the Opportunity Zone tax benefits over the course of 10 years and received $433,000 in additional benefits.

How The Nest Opportunity Fund Meets The “Substantial Improvement” Requirement

All Opportunity Zone investments are required to meet a “Substantial Improvement” requirement to enjoy the above-listed benefits. This requires that the cost of renovations must at least equal the cost of purchase, minus the land. The Nest Opportunity Fund primarily focuses its efforts on improving single-family residences. Because we seek to improve dilapidated, vacant structures and upgrade them from the ground up, our renovation efforts easily meet this threshold.
