Eric Bashford Jessica Millett Anthony Scaramucci
On Tuesday, April 9th, you are invited to a special Wharton Real Estate Investment group (WREI) meeting with Anthony Scaramucci, Eric Bashford and Jessica Millett on investing in Opportunity Zones in 2019, 2020 and Beyond.

On December 22, 2017, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act ratified by Congress enacted a new section of the Tax Code (26 U.S. Code § 1400Z) that provides tax incentives for investments in targeted disadvantaged areas in the United States through Opportunity Funds. This legislation had bi-Partisan support and was proposed by Senator Tim Scott (R) and Cory Booker (D) in 2016 and by Congressmen Pat Tiberi (R-Ohio) and Ron Kind (D-Wis.) in the House. The purpose of the Opportunity Funds is to promote economic re/development of these communities, known as Opportunity Zones. The program offers investors substantial federal tax advantages - deferral of Capital gains and also No Capital gains on any appreciation (certain holding period and other requirements apply). Join us to learn about the details of this exciting new program.

Moderated by Nick Petkoff.
