Opportunity Zones – March 28 2019 (O2388011x9F8AD)

The Saunders Real Estate “Lay of the Land” Conference took place on March 28 – 29th at the Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate.

Dean Mead tax attorneys, Michael Minton and Steve Looney, took the stage this year at a breakout session to speak about Opportunity Zones. Established by Congress in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, this incentive presents new opportunities for investors and can impact current owners’ land values. The program is meant to encourage long-term investment across the nation in low-income communities, and a copy of their PowerPoint presentation is attached for your reference.

The Lay of the Land Conference is an annual gathering of landowners, policymakers, investors and other industry affiliates who want the most accurate, current data about the Florida land market. Guest speakers share economic, market, sales and regulatory expertise.
