This tax initiative provides incentives for investors to re-invest capital gains into Opportunity Funds in exchange for temporary and long-term tax deferral and other benefits. The Opportunity Funds are then used to provide investment capital to economically challenged communities, i.e., Opportunity Zones. National experts will cover all aspects of this federal initiative to direct investment capital into economically challenged areas of the state. This seminar is designed for CPAs, lawyers, bankers, real estate brokers, potential investors and financial advisors. Also, this seminar will address many questions of business owners and real estate developers who are considering seeking an Opportunity Fund investment.  For more detailed information: The Hawaii Society of Certified Public Accountants is also offering 4 hours of CPE credit for their membership: (enroll through this HSCPA link for CPE credit and your ticket; this EventBrite site is for the general public only).
