Create opportunities with CLA
CLA has deep experience across a broad spectrum of potential Opportunity Zone (OZ) fund stakeholders, so we can translate how these incentives, established in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, apply to you.
Our CPAs and wealth advisors are immersed in the real estate field, the investment market, tax reform, and the industries our clients operate businesses in. We can help you make clear decisions and realize the full benefits of the Opportunity Zone program before the initial December 31, 2019 deadline.
Our professionals can also help you combine this fund with new markets and historical rehabilitation tax credits or cost segregation studies. As Economic Investment Group (EIG) coalition members, we will keep you apprised of the direction of Qualified Opportunity Zone (QOZ) funds over time.
