Matthew J. Schiller, a partner in the firm’s Real Estate and Redevelopment & Land Use Departments, will present a live webinar on “Qualified Opportunity Funds: Trends and Updates to Watch Out For” on Thursday, September 26, 2019 from 3:00pm – 5:30pm (ET). The program is being presented by The Knowledge Group.
Earlier this year, the Internal Revenue Service released and proposed new regulations that provide additional guidance for investors who need to understand the robust regulatory framework of Qualified Opportunity Zones (QOZs) and Qualified Opportunity Funds (QOFs). Under the proposed regulations, significant hurdles involving the latest compliance challenges investors and tax practitioners are facing have been removed. The proposed regulations also allow deferral of all or part of gain invested in QOF and to be otherwise included in income.
Although the proposed regulations addressed most of the hurdles of investing in a qualified opportunity zone, several key questions still remain that pose potential risks and challenges to investors. It is imperative to be in the know with the recent trends and developments in this area of law before committing any actions.
Some of the major topics that will be covered in this course are:
- Qualified Opportunity Funds: The Fundamentals
- Recent Trends and Developments
- Opportunities and Challenges
- Practical Tips and Best Practices
- What Lies Ahead
Mr. Schiller concentrates his practice in commercial real estate law. His work encompasses a wide array of commercial real estate transactional, zoning, redevelopment, taxation and litigation matters throughout New Jersey, New York and Connecticut.
