State Incentives: Texas is Where Business Goes Big

Opportunity Zones

Opportunity Zones are a community development program established by Congress in the Tax Cuts and Job Act of 2017 designed to spur economic development in less-developed and under-invested communities. The program provides a tax incentive for investors to re-invest their unrealized capital gains into Opportunity Funds that are dedicated to investing into Opportunity Zones designated by the chief executives of every U.S. state and territory. Now is a perfect time to invest in Opportunity Zones because capital gains taxes on earnings from many types of investments can be deferred until December 31, 2026.
