Join local leaders from South Dade and the Keys, developers, aspiring and existing small business owners, and investors to learn about a new, exciting investment tool.
The Florida SBDC at FIU, in partnership with Madison Street Strategies, is hosting an Opportunity Zone workshop to help aspiring and existing business owners and investors learn how to leverage and benefit from this new investment program. Expert panelists and presenters will take a deep dive into what Opportunity Zones are, the tax benefits, eligibility requirements, available resources, and more.
What are Opportunity Zones?
Created by the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, Opportunity Zones are an important economic development tool that allows investors to receive tax relief when they put money into qualified projects in certain designated, economically distressed areas. There are 427 designated Opportunity Zones in Florida, including multiple OZs in South Miami-Dade and the Florida Keys, designed to stimulate business investment and spur economic development. The benefits of these investments are supercharged by the favorable tax treatment of capital gains.
