|Opportunity Zones – an economically-distressed community where new investments, under certain conditions, may be eligible for preferential tax treatment. (click for more details from IRS.gov)
We’ve introduced a new mapping layer for Opportunity Zones (OZ’s) and made them searchable! To find properties which fall under OZ’s or to simply see boundaries of OZ’s, follow these steps below.
1. From the Map Search Page, Click on ‘Location’ from the upper left of the web page.
2. Under the ‘Location’ field, type in ‘OZ – WI‘ followed by the county of interest. Example of OZ’s in Milwaukee county, you would type in ‘OZ – WI Milwaukee‘. As you type, a list will appear and display selectable options. You may not need to type in the entire county name to find what you are looking for, but you will need to type in ‘OZ – WI‘ followed by the first letter or two of the desired county.
3. Click on the OZ of interest to display the OZ Boundaries on the map – which will in turn display the properties/listings in the OZ’s. You can further refine your search parameters as normal such as choosing just those properties that are ‘For Sale’, etc.
*Note: You can add more than one OZ to your Location filter by repeating the steps above. You can remove an OZ by clicking on the green ‘X’ which follows each OZ county name under ‘Applied Filters’.
