Development Benefits of Collier County’s Qualified Opportunity Zones


June 24, 2019 to June 24, 2019
11:00 AM


Learn from experts about the legal and tax benefits of the new federal Opportunity Zones program, which allows private investors to support distressed communities through private equity investments in businesses and real estate ventures. Collier County offers five Opportunity Zones: Golden Gate, Naples Manor, Immokalee and two areas surrounding Immokalee. The incentive is a deferral, reduction and potential elimination of certain federal capital-gains taxes. Investing in an Opportunity Zone can offer a permanent exclusion from taxable income of capital gains from the sale or exchange of an investment in an Opportunity Fund if the investment is held for at least 10 years. Following the presentation, there will be an opportunity to ask the experts questions. Presenters are: Mark Strain, chairman of the Collier County Planning Commission: Christy Cardillo, partner at Carr, Riggs & Ingram; Naples attorney Nabil Joseph, of Conrad Wilkomm PA; Jace Kentner, director of the Collier County Office of Business & Economic Development; Mike Bosi, Collier County zoning director; and Jamie French, deputy department head of the Collier County Growth Management Department. Who should attend? Economic development professionals, real estate developers/brokers, potential investors, small business owners and business incubator professionals.
