complete list. QO Funds and the Certification Process: A QO Fund is designed to be an investment vehicle that is set up as either a partnership or corporation by investing at least 90% of its assets in an eligible QO Zone Property. A QO Zone Property is either one of the following: QO Zone Business Property, QO Zone Stock, or QO Zone Partnership Interest. QO Zone Business Property is tangible property used in a trade of business of the QO Fund and meets the following requirements: The property must be acquired by the fund by purchase and from an un- related party to the fund; The original use of the acquired property must start with the QO Fund; or, the QO Fund substantially improves the used property. Substantial improvement re- quirement is met if 30 months after the date of acquisition the additional improvements to the property exceed the cost of acquiring the property. A domestic corporation or a partnership will be treated as either QO Zone Stock or QO Zone Partnership Interest if such entity was acquired by a QO Fund after December 31, 2017, and solely for cash. Furthermore, the QO corpora- tion or partnership in which a QO Fund invests must have an underlying active business located in a QO Zone, and the business itself does not operate in certain types of entertain- ment or recreational activities (i.e. golf course, country club, ERRY, GA — B+E , offering the first end-to- end trading platform for buyers and sellers to conduct triple net lease (NNN) transac- tions online announced the sale of a Georgia Publix property for $11.4 Million.

The certification process to become a QO Fund is a self- certification process in which the corporate or partnership entity will self-certify by at- taching a form to their timely led federal income tax return for the tax year. No approval or action by the IRS is required. If at any year the QO Fund holds less than 90% of the QO Zone Property, it would be sub- ject to a penalty for each month it fails to meet the requirement. How the Deal is Structured: 1. A QO Fund is formed and self-certified. 2. An investor with a recently realized gain elects to invest this gain into the QO Fund, taking stock or partnership interest in return. By so doing, the investor gets to defer the gain. Please note that the in- vestor is required to invest only the amount of the gain to be deferred, not the total amount realized. 3. The QO Fund uses the in- vestment to acquire a QO Zone Property. This investment rep- resents the QO Fund’s interest in the underlying business in the low-income community. 4. If the investor sells or ex- changes his QO Fund interest before December 31, 2026, the investor will recognize the deferred gain. However, if the investor holds the investment for at least 5 years, the inves- tor will receive a 10% step up in basis in connection with the original gain.

5. On year seven, the investor receives an additional 5% step up in basis in connection with the original gain, so 15% of the gain is reduced. 6. By December 31, 2026, if the investor has not sold the inter- est associated with the original gain, they must then recognize the gain. Please note that if the investment was held by at least seven years, the investor would only pick up 85% associated with the original deferred gain. 7. If the investor holds their interest in the QO Fund for at least 10 years, the investor would not owe any tax related to any QOZ property which has been appreciated during such time. Investing within a Qualified Opportunity Fund can be truly beneficial to developers who will see significant tax incentives, and property owners who can sell these properties and defer their taxable gains. This new development opportunity will draw additional investments to low-income communities and generate economic growth for their respective residents.
