The Only Three Federal Opportunity Zones in Gwinnett County are located in Gateway85 Gwinnett

The Federal Opportunity Zone Program is a new community and economic development tool that aims to drive long-term private investment into low-income communities throughout the country.

The program was established by Congress in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 and encourages investors with recently realized capital gains to invest in local businesses, real estate, or development projects in exchange for a reduction in their tax obligations.

Recently, the Internal Revenue Service released its long-awaited second round of regulations on investing in areas designated as economically distressed under the Federal Opportunity Zone Program, with the new rules providing greater flexibility for leased properties.
