An investment in our OZ fund offers the following incentives:

  3. Receive a 10% discount on your current capital gain tax once it becomes due in tax year 2026.

  4. Grow and exit your investment tax free if held for 10 years or longer.

  5. Receive pass through depreciation from the OZ fund investment, which can offset other taxable income.

  6. With a preferred return of 8% and target total return of 12% compounded annually, the upside potential is a tax-free 3X return over 10 years.

We had a nice turnout for our neighborhood clean-up event last Friday! Big thanks to everyone who joined the effort which removed more than a dozen large trash bags of litter and debris from our neighborhood streets! Shout out to Trent Smith & the Franklinton Board of Trade, Land-Grant Brewing Company, and The Original Josie's Pizza for supporting the effort!
