Bipartisan legislation was introduced to both the Senate and the U.S. House of Representatives last week that would improve Opportunity Zones and push back the tax incentive’s deferral date from 2026 to 2028.
The legislation, known as the Opportunity Zones Improvement, Transparency, and Extension Act, would implement the following changes:
Senators Cory Booker, a Democrat from New Jersey, and Tim Scott, a Republican from South Carolina, who introduced the original version of the OZ program in 2016, introduced the reform package in the Senate. Representatives Ron Kind, a Democrat from Wisconsin, and Mike Kelly, a Republican from Pennsylvania, introduced it in the House.
