    Opportunity Zones and their Potential Impact on East Metro

     

    In 2018, the U.S. Treasury made opportunity zone designations across the country to encourage long-term investments through a federal tax incentive.  Governor Brown's nomination resulted in 86 qualified opportunity zones in Oregon.  Opportunity Zones can deliver significant tax savings on medium- to long-term investments in economically disadvantaged communities.  This new tax incentive pertains to both the capital gains invested initially through a qualified opportunity fund, as well as capital gains earned for the investor from businesses or projects in a zone.  Each zone consists of an entire census tract, as established for the decennial U.S. Census.  tracts vary in size by generally align with population density.  Oregon has more than 800 census tracts, 366 of which were eligible, primarily by meeting the definition of a "low income community" in terms of median family incomes or poverty rates.  Ian Galloway of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco will give an in-depth presentation about how Opportunity Zones can impact East Metro.  You won't want to miss this.
