Event Secondary Body

ACG presents a look at Qualified Opportunity Funds (QOFs).  These were created by the TCJA of 2017 to spur economic growth in distressed areas by allowing investors to utilize funds from recently realized capital gains while deferring the corresponding tax liability.  ACG has assembled a panel of experts to assist you in exploring how this impacts you and your company.  Primary candidates for QOFs are:

  • Stock market investors with substantial unrealized capital gains in taxable accounts
  • Owners of appreciated real estate that wish to sell property and defer taxation – similar to, yet very different from, a like-kind (§1031) exchange
  • Business owners who wish to sell their company and defer taxation
  • Employees who stand to incur substantial gains as a result of selling employer stock acquired through equity-based compensation (ISOs)

Join us on November 8, 2019 at Commerce Bank as Ron Medley of Moloney Securities Asset Management moderates a panel including Brent Robbs of PNC, Jeff Hertz of Cantor Fitzgerald, Eric Goettelmann of Midas and Joe Bealmear of Polsinelli.
