The 2017 Tax Act introduced a new incentive to spur economic development in certain low-income census tracts. Egg Harbor Township has an eligible tract around the Atlantic City Airport. Opportunity Zone Funds allow investors to defer capital gains taxes by investing in developments or businesses there.
