For these growth-stage opportunity zone businesses, capital is the key to more product, more customers, and bigger successes. At the American Armory Opportunity Fund, the aim is to increase and expedite the growth stage of maturing businesses to create long-term, billion-dollar companies. “Speed-ups;” are well established in their current market and ready to execute clear plans to expand their business.

Opportunity Zone Advantage
Opportunity Zones are designed to spur economic development by providing tax benefits to investors. First, investors can defer tax on any prior Capital Gains deposited into a Qualified Opportunity Zone Fund (QOF) for up to FIVE YEARS. Then, after five years they will ONLY be required to pay taxes on 90% of the original amount deposited thanks to a “10% Step Up Basis.” Additionally, those deferred taxes at 90% will only be assessed at the CURRENT rate of 23.5% and therefore are likely to avoid far higher future capital gains tax rates.
Finally, after a required ten-year minimum term, the initial amount deposited PLUS all of the accrued interest derived from QOF property (real estate and business stock) can then be withdrawn from the QOF entirely TAX FREE.
Initial Investment into the Fund: 0% Tax Due – One Million dollars invested today will appreciate tax free for five years.
5 Year Anniversary – 10% Step Up Basis – On Deferred capital gains tax due at 23.5% assessed on $900,000, which is 10% less than the total one million invested.
10 Year Anniversary – Tax Free – If Opportunity Zone investment generates another $9 million in profit over the ten-year term, the entire $10 million can then be withdrawn tax free (Dollar amounts are used for example only).
Qualified Opportunity Zones
The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 created Qualified Opportunity Zones (“QOZs”) to provide potentially significant tax benefits to investors who re-invest capital gains into long-term investments into communities designated for economic development. There are over 8,500 QOZs across all US states, Washington DC, and Puerto Rico. They offer investors the ability to positively impact communities struggling to attract capital to generate sustainable economic opportunity for their communities.
