Is the Opportunity Zone program just another tax strategy that many individuals facing capital gains tax exposure should know about? Yes, but it’s much more than that! There are many under-appreciated aspects of OZ Fund investing that are going under the radar that will blow your mind! In this podcast, securities attorney and OZ expert Gerry Reihsen takes you through some examples and provides some thoughts on what makes a great Opportunity Zone investment! This is a gold mine of information!

Listen to “Underappreciated Aspects of Opportunity Zones” on Spreaker.

Part 1 of this topic was so interesting, we couldn’t fit it all in one podcast. This podcast is basically part 2 of the original discussion of the Unique Usages of Opportunity Zones Investing. There are so many creative ways to take full advantage of Opportunity Zones, but many have no idea about the versatility of the program. Until now!

At first, OZ Funds were all about real estate. But as you’ll learn by listening to Mr. Reihsen on this podcast, that has evolved significantly into an entire area of unique business development with tremendous tax incentives where many are marrying a bunch of great benefits to really juice up opportunity zone deals. It’s all about investing in reliable assets that will cash flow out and increase in value over a 10-year timeframe.

Learn about depreciation recapture, cost-segregation, tax credits, and other strategies to develop businesses such as solar projects, carbon credits, gold mines, cryptocurrency mining, urban farming and many more!

Remember: with the proper guidance, you can make OZ funds work for you in almost any business. And for proper guidance, you need to contact Gerry. He can be reached by phone at 214-908-2009, by email here, or visit his websites at and
