“Adding opportunity zones coverage is a natural extension of the journal, considering how well opportunity zones complement other incentives that benefit underserved populations and communities, such as the low-income housing tax credit and new markets tax credit,” -Michael J. Novogradac, CPA.
SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) July 24, 2018
The Novogradac Journal of Tax Credits announced today that it will debut in its September issue a new section dedicated to opportunity zones, a community development tool designed to spur economic development in underserved communities by providing tax benefits to investors. The opportunity zones incentive was created as part of the 2017 tax reform bill.
The new section of the Novogradac Journal of Tax Credits will report opportunity zones news, analysis and insights, and will feature stories about opportunity zone funds and investments.
“Adding opportunity zones coverage is a natural extension of the journal, considering how well opportunity zones complement other incentives that benefit underserved populations and communities, such as the low-income housing tax credit and new markets tax credit,” said Michael J. Novogradac, CPA, publisher of the Novogradac Journal of Tax Credits and managing partner of Novogradac & Company LLP. “Just as with our coverage of other tax incentives, the content in our opportunity zones section will be aimed at giving readers the insights they need to make informed decisions.”
“As with any tax incentive, understanding the rules and discovering best practices increases a participant’s chances of success,” said John Sciarretti, CPA, the Novogradac & Company LLP partner who leads the Novogradac Opportunity Zones Working Group. “The Novogradac Journal of Tax Credits’ opportunity zones coverage will be an important resource for readers to learn how the incentive works, keep abreast of emerging issues and discover best practices of others using the incentive.”
