CommercialForum Opportunity Zones Summit

June 18 @ 8:30 am - 12:30 pm

Commercial real estate investors, brokers, and developers are all interested in the newly minted Qualified Opportunity Zones (QOZs) program, which was created to spur investment, development and job creation in distressed communities, while also providing a tax incentive to investors. There are 135 QOZs in Chicago, making this investment opportunity highly relevant to Chicago REALTORS® and the larger real estate community.

In essence, QOZs afford the following financial benefits:
1. Deferral of capital gains

2. Partial exclusion of deferred gain (10% if held for 5 years, 15% if held for 7 years)

3.  100% tax-free if held for 10 years. 

This is an unprecedented benefit for commercial real estate. Join us in learning more about this program and the opportunities available to you and your clients.

Space is limited. Please click here for more information on CAR’s event attendance and cancellation policy. A limited quantity of onsite registrations will be accepted, pending availability.
