New Mexico has 63 designated Opportunity Zones (OZ) in 22 counties as part of the U.S. Government’s Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. The purpose of the tax law is to attract capital investment into economically distressed areas in exchange for a reduced tax obligation.
 
The forum is free of charge and will include time for networking with exhibitors and attendees, a box lunch, and cover a range of topics related to OZ:
  • OZ Introduction/Policy Basics
  • OZ Project Development, Step by Step for Communities
  • How to Leverage Funding Sources in an OZ
  • How to Promote Your OZ or Project
  • NM Resources
  • NM Initiative
 
NM EDD Cabinet Secretary Alicia J. Keyes will be announcing a new incentive for New Mexico Opportunity Zones.
