This week, the New Jersey Division of Taxation issued key guidance on the Opportunity Zone program. The guidance provides that New Jersey will conform to federal tax rules when it comes to the Opportunity Zone tax benefits for gross income and corporation business tax purposes. Accordingly, New Jersey taxpayers will have the opportunity to take advantage of the deferral and reduction of current capital gains, while realizing future capital gains on a Qualified Opportunity Fund investment tax-free. A copy of the guidance can be found here.
