ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Opportunity Zones were established as part of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 as an economic development tool to spur investment in economically-distressed areas. 

 

The program allows significant tax incentives to taxpayers to reinvest unrealized capital gains in certain properties and businesses located or operating in low-income Census tracts which have been designated as Qualified Opportunity Zones (QOZ) by the U.S. Department of Treasury. Thirty-one (31) Census tracts have been designated as QOZs in the Greater Nashville Area.
