Having publicly traded shares gives Park View OZ REIT (PVOZ) investors the power to control their own holding period, unlocking tax-efficient financial planning strategies unavailable from most QOF investments. Here are some examples:
1. Achieving tax-free compound growth. The biggest tax benefit offered by a QOF investment is the potential for tax-free compound growth, aka “the eighth wonder of the investing world” beyond ten years. Once an investor achieves a 10-year hold in the QOF they can eliminate any capital gain liability. This benefit is often thought of as a 10-year benefit but does not expire until 2047. Compound growth curves
accelerate in the outer years, and this is certainly true for QOFs. Using typical market returns, more than 80% of tax benefits are derived after year 10. Unfortunately, many QOFs have planned liquidations shortly after the tenth year, ending the tax-free compound growth prematurely. We give our investors the ability to stay invested, keeping tax-free growth compounding for decades. The option to keep tax-free compound growth rolling can be very beneficial (see graph.)
2. Better matching of gains and losses. QOFs can provide investors participating in volatile sectors with a great option for mitigating taxes. When an investor has a capital gain, whether short-term or long-term, they can choose to pay the tax, or they may want to defer the tax by using QOF tax incentives. If they defer the gain and then suffer a capital loss in any future year during the deferral period they can trigger all or a portion of their deferred gain by selling the appropriate portion of their QOF. This realization of a deferred tax liability in a year with a tax loss delivers tax efficiency while keeping capital working for you longer.
3. Lowering tax rates on 1231 gains. Gains and losses from business property (1231 gains held for more than a year) are taxed asymmetrically. Gains are taxed at capital gains rates, but losses are taken at higher ordinary income rates. This is a very taxpayer-friendly rule, but there is a “5-year look back period.” If you took a 1231 loss four years ago and this year you have a 1231 gain, the tax rate for the gain will be at ordinary income tax rates to offset the loss within the “look back” window. By investing in Park View OZ REIT’s shares you can potentially defer the 1231 gains realization date beyond the “5-year look back, reducing the potential applicable tax rate from 37% to the capital gains rate of 20%, all while keeping your money working for you longer.”
Park View OZ REIT was designed to give investors and investment advisors the accessibility and holding period flexibility they need to create superior tax-efficient strategies.
