Please join us for breakfast at the University of South Carolina Alumni Center where Ben Johnson, Director of Research at the South Carolina Department of Commerce, will be presenting the results of a new state mandated economic development initiative designed to encourage long-term private investments in low-income communities.

This program provides a federal tax incentive for taxpayers who reinvest unrealized capital gains into “Opportunity Funds,” which are specialized vehicles dedicated to investing in low-income areas called “Opportunity Zones.” The zones themselves are to be comprised of Low-Income Community census tracts and designated by governors in every state.

South Carolina may designate 25 percent of qualifying census tracts as an Opportunity Zone.
