Who Can Invest in a QOF?
Anyone who has recognized capital gains in their recent tax history can invest in a Qualified Opportunity Fund (QOF). QOFs are designed to encourage long-term investments in economically distressed communities called Opportunity Zones. Individual and corporate investors, trusts, and partnerships can all participate in these investments, as long as they meet the eligibility requirements set forth by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) in the United States. It is important to consult with a financial advisor or tax professional to ensure you understand the specific requirements, potential risks, and benefits of investing in a QOF.
