in April, spell out exactly how businesses can meet the 50% income threshold, and the requirements are now more flexible. Under new guidance, any one of the below criteria will clear the test: At least 50% of the hours worked by employees and in- dependent contractors occur within the QOZ. At least 50% of the total amount the company pays for services performed goes toward services performed in the QOZ. The company’s tangible prop- erty and management or opera- tional functions performed in the QOZ are necessary to gen- erate 50% of its gross income. And if a business doesn’t meet any of these “safe har- bors,” it can still meet the 50% requirement if it can argue that at least half of its gross income is derived from its “active con- duct” within the QOZ. The goal is that these rules will spur investors to invest their capital gains in qualifying startups located with QOZs. As a word of caution, it’s im- portant for investors to evalu- ate each project carefully. QOZs are intentionally designed not to function like a get-rich-quick scheme; and while they can help turn a good venture into a great one, they will never turn a bad venture into a good one.

A: Most QOZ investments have involved real estate. Giv- en that real estate is immobile, investments in it have most clearly met the program’s re- quirements and, therefore, were the simplest and safest investments to pursue. Besides purchasing a property within a delineated QOZ tract, prior provisions of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 stated that at least 70% of a leased physi- cal property must be situated within a QOZ. Additionally, preexisting firms are not eligible for the newly instated QOZ benefits. The law is designed to draw fresh activity to the areas by requiring that no less than 90% of a business’s lease term be in effect after the commencement of the Act in December 2017. Furthermore, at least 50% of a QOZ business’s income must be generated within the given Opportunity tract. This latter point has proven rather dubious: certainly, traditional brick-and-mortar businesses, such as a neighborhood diner or grocery store, would qualify for the program. But what about online retailers or startups, which are physically based in a QOZ, yet ship products and generate significant income outside of a QOZ? The new provisions, released This determination, which may change over the life of the company, drastically affects the presentation of a company’s financial statements. A real es- tate entity that does not qual- ify as an investment company would likely report the real estate (land and building) on its balance sheet at depreciated cost, along with receivables and payables from operations. The income statement would reflect the operations of the property including, but not limited to, rental income, operating ex- penses and depreciation. Com- paratively, a real estate entity that qualifies as an investment company would report the in- vestment in real estate at fair
