There are approximately $6 trillion of unrealized capital gains held by U.S. investors; Opportunity Zones presents a tax-preferred method to reinvest those gains.

The goal is to spur long-term investment in low-income urban and rural communities; to create economic and community development; and to create more opportunities for startups and new businesses.

Mechanism to incentivize investment in underserved communities across the nation.
