Many investors are biting at the chops, or at the least tempted, to sow for the harvest of enticing new Qualified Opportunity Zone (QOZ) tax breaks. Beyond the economic risk of investing in property in distressed areas, the problem is the QOZ statutes and regs don’t provide enough certainty to give would-be investors the comfort to give it a go.


On 04/17/19, Treasury dropped into our laps the second batch of long awaited QOZ proposed regulations. This is very good news. But, the bad news is we did not get all the news we needed. Either way, investors need answers today.
