Opportunity Zone Investing – a Deep Dive with James O. Lang, Tax Shareholder at Greenberg Traurig

When:  Jan 29, 2019 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM (CT)
Associated with  CCIM New York Metro Chapter
Opportunity zones present unprecedented tax benefits. In many cases, gains from investments which are invested in these zone defer taxes on the gains until the property is sold or 2026. However, if the investment is held ten years the gain on the sale of the property is tax free!
As with most highly incentivized investment programs, the rules are complex and still evolving. We are fortunate to have Jim Lang, Tax Shareholder at Greenberg Traurig, who focuses on opportunity zone investing, to provide unparalleled insight to the program, its opportunities and pitfalls.
Join us for a lively discussion focusing on a variety of topics:
-  What are Opportunity Zones?
-  What are Qualified Opportunity Funds? 
-  How do the tax benefits phase in?
-  What to look for in QOF sponsors and properties
-  Risks and unsettled tax guidance
DATE:  Tuesday, January 29, 2019
TIME:   6:00–8:00 p.m. (presentation begins promptly at 6:30)
LOCATION:  Greenberg Traurig, 200 Park Avenue (No walk ins)
