Opportunity Zone Program Deadlines And Guidance

Opportunity Zone Deadlines - Blake Christian

The IRS issued Notices 2020-18, 2020-20, and 2020-23 (“Notices” or “Notice”) in response to the COVID-19 crisis and CARES Act. These Notices are intended to provide some needed guidance, extended filing and compliance deadlines, and cash-flow relief to taxpayers struggling with this current economic environment. The following is a quick summary of these Notices and how Opportunity Zone investors may be able to benefit from:

-an extended window for investing their capital gains into a Qualified Opportunity Fund (QOF),
-an additional 24-month Federal Disaster extension of the standard 31-month working capital safe harbor and the “substantial improvement” period for a tangible property (if included in the written business plan), and
-an extension of time to deploy Qualified Opportunity Zone Business (QOZB) funds into QOZB Property (QOZBP).
