Opportunity Zones are development tool designed to spur development and job creation in certain communities. Opportunity Zones provide investors with a different tax tool than a 1031 tax deferred exchange, but can provide tax benefits if investments meet certain conditions. 

The Opportunity Zone program is a new investment vehicle created under a provision of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of December 2017. The program was developed to encourage investors to invest funds in economically distressed communities thereby stimulating economic development in these areas.  When certain funds are invested in these communities, known as Qualified Opportunity Zones (QOZ), investors are able to enjoy immediate as well as eventual tax benefits.  Such benefits can include deferral of gain, partial forgiveness of deferred gain and complete forgiveness of certain additional future gains if certain investment criteria are satisfied. A 10 year commitment for full advantage is a consideration.

Locations can be challenging which is the reason for encouragement to consider this method.

One can learn more about the basics of Opportunity Zones here:

There are various tax strategies involving selling property that is both a personal residence and investment property. If property is held partially for personal use and partially for investment, such as a working ranch with a house on it in which the owner lives, a portion of the gain from the sale of the personal residence is exempt from tax under IRC §121 and the remaining tax can be deferred under §1031. Revenue Procedure 2005-14 clarifies how Sections 121 and 1031 can be used at the same time in connection with the disposition of the same property.

One can simplify without the §1031 exchange. LegacyChange and certain Income Rehab properties can defer or deduct all gain and depreciation recapture tax.  The certain Income Rehab replacement property advantage is it can encompass only the gain allowing basis to be included to deduct gain and other tax.
