Cambridge Tues 10/15: Qualified Opportunity Zones, Landlord-Tenant Laws by Chapter and Verse

View Calendar
10/15/2019 5:30 PM - 10/15/2019 9:00 PM
Cambridge Innovation Center - 5th Floor
Address: One Broadway, 1 Broadway, Cambridge, MA 02142, USA
Part I: Qualified Opportunity Zones The Tax Cut and Jobs Act of 2017 granted states the power to define Qualified Opportunity Zones, which offer tax-deferred or tax-free investment opportunities to landlords and businesses alike. We'll review this process and show areas in your neck of the woods that would qualify. This part of the presentation is MassLandlords repertoire and will be given by MassLandlords staff or an accountant TBA. (Want to speak? Let us know.) Part II: Laws by Chapter and Verse The Massachusetts General Laws will be made plain by looking at them in a logical, orderly way. We'll glide over the laws by chapter and verse, pointing out the highlights, key points, and gotchas. After this presentation, you'll be better prepared to find and read the laws for yourself. Anytime someone makes up, "That's against the law!" you'll be able to say, "Well, let's see what section that might be in." Do you have a sign on your building? You should! Have you told another landlord someone didn't pay you rent? You shouldn't! All this and more. This part of the presentation is MassLandlords repertoire and will be given by MassLandlords staff or an attorney TBA. (Want to speak? Let us know.)
