Opportunity Zones

The 2017 federal Tax Cut and Jobs Act enabled the creation of Opportunity Zones, areas in which certain investments in businesses, property, and real estate may qualify for meaningful tax benefits. In April, 2018, the U.S. Department of the Treasury designated two of Clinton's three census tracts as qualified Opportunity Zones. 

Information on the Opportunity Zone Program may be found here.
