What is an Opportunity Zone?

The Opportunity Zones program is a federal tax deferment investment program designed to spur community development in distressed areas by providing long-term tax benefits to investors. Erie County has 23 census tracts, or zones, within the following communities that have been designated as Opportunity Zones by the U.S. Department of the Treasury:

  • Town of Amherst
  • City of Buffalo
  • City of Lackawanna
  • City of Tonawanda
  • Town of Tonawanda

Investing in or creating a new business or development in a designated Opportunity Zone may have significant future tax benefits to an investor, such as deferred taxes on Capital Gains.
