Opportunity Zone Basics in Oregon


Oregon Residents can potentially make a positive impact in Opportunity Zones across the country.

Opportunity Zone Basics

What is an Opportunity Zone?

Apartment Building

"Opportunity Zones are an economic development tool that allows people to invest in distressed areas in the United States. Their purpose is to spur economic growth and job creation in low-income communities while providing tax benefits to investors. Opportunity Zones were created under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (Public Law No. 115-97)"

Why do Opportunity Zones Matter to Investors?

Investors can realize tax benefits by investing capital gains into Qualified Opportunity Funds (QOFs), which in turn invest in businesses or real estate projects located in Opportunity Zones. The tax incentives include deferral of capital gains taxes, in some cases a reduction in the amount of taxable capital gains, and potential elimination of capital gains taxes on the appreciation of the investment if certain conditions are met.

Most QOZs require investors to be accredited investors. Find out if you are accredited here.

OZs in Oregon

T. Mann Financial's 3-Step QOZ Process

1. Determine Suitability

Once a capital gain event has been identified we have a conversation with our clients to determine if a qualified opportunity zone investment is suitable for their specific situation. We discuss their risk tolerance, time horizon, goals, tax situation, access to cash in the case of an emergency, etc. 

2. Select one or more QOZs

T. Mann Financial works with our compliance team to identify multiple options and then work with our clients to select a combination that would best meet their individual needs.

3. Integrate QOZs into the larger Portfolio

Risks Associated with Opportunity Zones

While QOZs can be a great opportunity for investors, any one or more QOZ should never compose more than a small fraction of your total portfolio as these investments are considered high risk by the SEC. 

Example QOZ Investment

building construction

Imagine a wealthy investor named Duck from Eugene Oregon just sold an apartment complex that he has owned for many years. Duck shared his concerns with T. Mann Financial about the fact he has been depreciating that asset and will incur a large capital gain as a result of the sale. He doesn't have the cash to pay for the capital gains tax now but will in a few years.


After a conversation with T. Mann Financial it is determined that Duck is a suitable candidate for a QOZ investment. 


T. Mann Financial then presents multiple qualified opportunity Zone funds and together they select and invest in two of them.

In this scenario, Duck would have been able to defer those capital gains until 2026.
