What is an Opportunity Zone and a Qualified Opportunity Fund?

An Opportunity Zone is an identified economically distressed community where under certain conditions new investments may be eligible for favored tax treatment. These designated zones are located throughout all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and five U.S. territories.
