James Duffy with Briggs & Morgan will lead the charge into the world of Qualified Opportunity Zones and Qualified Opportunity Funds at a workshop on Tuesday October 30 in Waseca.  Designated by the U.S. Department of the Treasury, Opportunity Zones provide the place for new ventures.  Opportunity Funds provide the vehicle to defer capital gains taxes by making new investments.  As a new financial tool, Opportunity Funds will also raise many questions.  Jim Duffy keeps abreast of the unfolding landscape of Opportunity Funds, in part, by being part of an industry group that studies the issues in this developing area of the tax law and that has offered comments to the IRS with respect to regulations to be issued for Opportunity Funds. Seeking to maximize the potential of the Opportunity Zone in Waseca, the Economic Development Authority has asked Jim Duffy to bring his expertise to educate those attending about this exciting opportunity.  With nearly 1,000,000 square feet of available quality industrial and office space combined with great transportation, a quality workforce, and near the Twin Cities, Waseca is an ideal place to demonstrate how Opportunity Funds can make money for investors while revitalizing Minnesota.

The workshop will be held from 10:00 AM until noon at the Miller Armstrong Building, Third Floor, 204 2nd St. SW in Waseca.
