OHIO BUDGET CREATES 10 PERCENT CREDIT FOR OPPORTUNITY ZONES INVESTMENT
A 10 percent tax credit for investments in the state’s opportunity zones is part of the fiscal year 2020-21 budget signed by Gov. Mike DeWine. The credit, originally part of S.B. 8, is for investments in qualified opportunity funds that hold 100 percent of invested assets in Ohio. There is a $1 million cap per taxpayer for each fiscal biennium and a statewide cap of $50 million per fiscal biennium.
