Both events were very well received and provided investors with a first-hand look at two major development projects in Atlanta. Both projects are expected to be completed by late 3rd Quarter 2023.

JID Investments Announces 2022 Qualified Opportunity Zone Fund

  • Open to Accredited Investors;
  • Available for investment now through December 2022 (and possibly longer);
  • Funds invested must be realized capital gains from prior investments or transactions (within the past 180 days);
  • Taxes on invested original capital gains will be deferred until 2026 tax year;
  • Tax deductions flow through to investors each year throughout the investment, and
  • Opportunity Zone (OZ) investment gains are tax free once held for 10 years (on federal and most states).

JID Investments LLC (JIDI), in a joint partnership with a very experienced Columbus, Ohio Developer/Sponsor will initially invest in a residential apartment complex and single-family home in Columbus, Ohio. The property is expected to include 42 one/two-bedroom apartments and a single-family home located just a few blocks from the thriving Columbus downtown with easy access to restaurants, shopping, The Ohio State University, and major highways.  The complete Summary of Investments is currently available and has been shared with JIDI Accredited Investors.  The Private Placement Memorandum (PPM) package will be available for review on or about June 21st.  This is JIDI’s second Qualified Opportunity Zone Fund.

JIDI anticipates future net rental profits to result in quarterly distributions as the property stabilizes as well as the potential of a refinance or recapitalization, which would provide the return of a portion of investor investment capital. This return of capital may be utilized to pay the deferred tax due on initial investment capital gains for investor’s 2026 tax return.

Opportunity Zone Investing

What is a Qualified Opportunity Zone?

A Qualified Opportunity Zone (QOZ) is an economically distressed community where new investments, under certain conditions, may be eligible for favored tax treatment.  Localities qualify as QOZs if they have been nominated for designation by a state, the District of Columbia, or a U.S. territory and that nomination has been certified by the Secretary of the U.S. Treasury via his delegation of authority to the Internal Revenue Service.  QOZs were included in the tax code by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act on December 22, 2017.

What is a Qualified Opportunity Zone Fund?

A Qualified Opportunity Zone Fund (QOF) is an investment vehicle that files either a partnership or corporate federal income tax return and is organized for the purpose of investing in QOZ property.

What types of gains are eligible for deferral if invested in a QOF?

Gains that may be deferred are called “eligible gains.”  They include both short-term and long-term capital gains and qualified 1231 gains, but only gains that would be recognized for federal income tax purposes before January 1, 2027, and that are not from a transaction with a related person.  For you to obtain this deferral, the amount of the eligible gain must be timely invested in a QOF in exchange for an equity interest in the QOF (qualifying investment).  Once you have done this, you can claim the deferral on your federal income tax return for the taxable year in which the gain would be recognized if you do not defer it.

This Opportunity Zone Investment’s main features include:

  • Open to Accredited Investors only on a first come first served basis, minimum investment is $20,000
  • Funds invested must be realized capital gains from prior investments or transactions within the past six months;
  • Taxes on invested original capital gains will be deferred until 2026 tax year
  • Tax deductions flow through to investors each year throughout the investment, and
  • OZ investment gains are tax free once held for 10 years.

Additional Benefits Include:

  • Deferral of tax due through tax year 2026
  • Taxpayers will receive depreciation deductions passed through in their annual k-1 statements resulting in tax savings on their personal returns. This depreciation does NOT need to be recaptured at time of assets sale if sale occurs at Year 10.

For non-JIDI accredited investors who would like to participate, you can access Accredited Investor Questionnaire (AIQ) by clicking here or request a DocuSign copy by e-mailing David Rutherford at [email protected].  Once investors complete the AIQ and JIDI approves it, they will be sent the Private Placement Memorandum package plus all future offerings and communications.
