Opportunity Zones

NAR supports Qualified Opportunity Zones, which offer powerful capital gains tax incentives to investors to redeploy assets into economically troubled areas throughout the country and to keep them invested for long periods. Newly-constructed and revitalized commercial real estate is expected to be a primary focus for a great deal of the new investment expected through this incentive program.
