Puerto Rico issues its own Opportunity Zone legislation

The U.S. Tax Reform created a new rule under the U.S. Internal Revenue Code of 1986, that allows investors to defer the recognition of capital gains by investing in a Qualified Opportunity Fund that invests in Qualified Opportunity Zones. As part of this legislation, almost 95% of Puerto Rico was designated as an Opportunity Zone. Following the federal government’s lead in this area, the Puerto Rico House of Representatives submitted Bill No. 1887 to create the “Act for the Development of Opportunity Zones and Economic Development of 2018”.
