On Dec. 19, the United States Department of the Treasury released final regulations related to investment in Qualified Opportunity Zones and Qualified Opportunity Funds (544 pages). These highly anticipated regulations and related guidance provide critical information to investors, Qualified Opportunity Funds (QOFs), and project sponsors/operators involved in real estate, venture capital, operating businesses, and project finance in Qualified Opportunity Zones (QOZs). Many provisions of two rounds of prior proposed regulations were finalized or amended, and new provisions and guidance offer further clarity in areas critical for investor evaluation.

Greenberg Traurig has broad experience working with clients in QOF fund formation and investor utilization of QOZ benefits, along with sponsor, developer, and operator project qualification under this emerging tax incentive program for economic revitalization.
