​An investment in our OZ fund offers the following incentives:

  1. Eligibility for a State of Ohio Income Tax Credit in an amount equal to 10% of your investment into our fund (a Qualified Ohio OZ Fund). The tax credit can be sold for quick cash to juice your ROI or otherwise used to offset any State of Ohio tax liability for up to five years.  

  2. Defer the tax on a current capital gain until tax year 2026 (payable in 2027) and meanwhile earn a return on your deferred tax while it’s invested in the fund.

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

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

  5. 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.  

  6. Grow your wealth while helping propel positive change in Columbus neighborhoods!
