Invest in Opportunity Zones with Localstake
Take advantage of a new investment tax break
Opportunity zones offer investors a way to decrease the tax burden from capital gains.
What are opportunity zones?
A new tax incentive program created by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017.
- The goal of the program is to incentivize investment in specific areas across the country, spurring economic growth.
- Investment must be made in designated Opportunity Zones which are census tracts nominated by states and certified by the US Treasury.
Opportunity zones are specific census tracts identified as needing development.
Why should I invest in an Opportunity Zone?
Defer tax payments on recently earned capital gains until as far out as 2026.

Your opportunity zone investment grows tax free
