Course Description

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 brought changes in many areas, leading many observers (even experts) to easily overlook the idea that the legislation contains the greatest government-sponsored tax shelter in American history. Anyone advising high-net-worth or ultra-high-net-worth individuals should be aware of the fantastic planning avenue that the new Section 1400Z represents. When devising ways to defer or even eliminate taxation for these taxpayers, investment in a qualified opportunity zone is an essential option to add to the planner’s arsenal.

Learning Objectives

  • Educate the viewer about what qualified opportunity zones are.

  • Show the viewer how taxpayers may maximize the tax benefits of investing in qualified opportunity zones.

  • Allow the viewer to speak intelligently about the features of Section 1400Z to his or her clientele.
