New website to provide Opportunity Zone resources for investors

Wednesday, March 27, 2019
Opalesque Industry Update - OpZone.com, a new website designed to be the central resource for information about Opportunity Zones, launched today. The Opportunity Zone tax incentive was established by Congress to encourage long-term investments in low-income urban and rural communities nationwide.

According to Tom Mullarkey, CEO and Co-founder of OpZone.com, "We believe that bringing an institutional mindset to Opportunity Zones is essential for the program to succeed. We are confident that our efforts will improve the efficient flow of information, and we hope that OpZone.com will assist the program in its mission of accelerating the flow of capital to communities in need."

OpZone.com is a website dedicated to sourcing the best information about Opportunity Zones in one central location. OpZone.com is the hub for relevant news and information for all facets of the Opportunity Zone industry including investors, fund managers, real estate developers, lawyers, accountants, and government officials.

Key features of OpZone.com include:

Opportunity Zones were added to the tax code by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act on December 2017 with the purpose of spurring economic development and job creation in certain communities with private capital. Over 8,700 census tracts were certified as Opportunity Zones throughout the United States, including Puerto Rico and other US territories.
