Kay Properties & Investments Helps Stock Market Investor

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Kay Properties & Investments recently helped a sophisticated high-net-worth investor strategically identify viable Qualified Opportunity Zone (QOZ) projects to help him achieve greater diversification from a heavy stock market concentration and take advantage of the unique tax benefits associated with the law outlined by the 115th Congress in Public Law No: 115-97 on December 22, 2017. 

According to Betty Friant, Senior Vice President with Kay Properties & Investments, expert tax advantaged real estate advisor and highly experienced QOZ investment advisor, the client knew a little about QOZs, but relied on Kay Properties & Investments and their own CPA and attorney to help create a complete business plan that included both short-and long-term objectives. 

“This particular investor did really well in the stock market but wanted to add diversification to his overall portfolio. Kay Properties helped him identify different Qualified Opportunity Zone projects that contained multiple properties distributed across many different geographic regions, multiple asset types, and with a diverse tenant mix,” said Friant. 

According to the Internal Revenue Service, Qualified Opportunity Zones were created by the United States Congress as part of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. The purpose of the program was to encourage long-term investments in low-income communities across the United States. The United States Department of Treasury estimates there are more than 8,700 QOZs in the country, including in territories like Puerto Rico. If the investor invests gains from a previous investment before December 31, 2021, and then holds their interest in the QOZ fund for at least five years, the tax they owe in December 2026 may be reduced by approximately 10% by virtue of the stepped-up basis. Furthermore, if the investor holds the investment for 10 years, there is potentially no tax on any appreciation on reinvested gains that they made. 

“So obviously, one of the keys to this investment strategy for this investor was to make sure the QOZ investment was initiated before December 31, 2021, after which he would not be able to receive a 10% step-up basis on his original investment,” said Friant. 

According to Friant, Qualified Opportunity Zones may be able to provide investors a unique way to reduce taxes while doing something good for those who are less fortunate. By simply rolling profits over from the selling of a business, stocks, bonds, cryptocurrency, jewelry, art or real estate into a Qualified Opportunity Zone, investors can reap an array of tax benefits — assuming they make the investment within six months of realizing their capital gain.

“But the thing about QOZs is that their designation is based on data from the 2010 census, and QOZ’s didn’t become law until 2017. So here we are in 2021 and some of these previously identified opportunity zones are now on the edge of some of the hottest real estate in the United States,” said Friant.
