Opportunity Zone investing and funds

Recommended Posts

I have a couple of real estate investments I want to sell, both of them have sizable capital gains. My tax account suggest Opportunity Zone investments to defer the tax, even to eliminate the tax. I looked it up it seems very appealing, but not sure what would be the best way to go: should I set up something myself? that will require significant operation and time commitment; or should I just buy one of the opportunity zone fund, then which one? they all carry pretty high fees and relatively new. Anyone with experience to share?

 

Here are some background of opportunity zone investing:

Buy real estate in a crappy location & become a slum lord or pay your fair share of taxes.

 

Decisions, decisions.

Seeing as to qualify for the OZ tax relief, you have to spend a pretty big portion of the basis on improvement costs, you seem to misunderstand what 'slum lord' actually means.

You may be right.

 

It just smacks of a property that's been depreciated to shelter revenue & then gets swapped into another property to further

avoid taxes. Minimal improvements get made & the cycle continues with jacked up rents from the new landlord.

 

IMO, this is exactly the kind of nonsense that brings whack jobs like Bernie Sanders to prominence.

 

I could be wrong but we don't know since the full story isn't available.
