Event Description:
The Opportunity Zone Act, approved as part of the Federal Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, has the potential to attract more than $50 billion in capital to designated, low-income "Opportunity Zones" across the U.S. The program allows investors to defer payment of federal capital gains by investing those gains as equity into a qualified project within a give "zone."  

Lawrence has received federal designation for two such opportunity zones - essentilly all of East Lawrence, from Mass Street to Noria Road, and both KU's main and west campus (see MAP here). 

This session should be of interest to those in the development community, local government officials, non-profits, financial/investment advisors, real estate attorneys, accountants, etc. as well as anyone with a  significant federal capital gains tax liability. 

The program will include a presentation from a reprenesentative of the National Development Council as well as others from the Kansas Department of Commerce and the local development community. The event is free to attend and will be held, Tuesday, Feb. 12, from 3:30 - 5:30pm, at the BTBC facility on West Campus. Light appetizers and beverages will be provided. 

Registration is required as space is limited! Please join us as we explore the implications of this exciting development tool for the Lawrence community.
