Just how beneficial are 'Opportunity Zones' to residents in low-income areas?
"As a government policy the idea of these opportunities owns has been around for decades low income areas get special tax incentives to encourage investment presidential candidate and senator Cory Booker has been a big proponent of opportunities owns as a way to inject capital an ailing cities like Newark New Jersey which is got millions of dollars in private investment under the policy we know that kids growing up in low income areas actually will make less money than their peers growing up in areas that have more economic investment and so when I was a mayor of one of America's poorest census tracts was mayor of Newark New Jersey one of my major goals every day was how can I get capital invested in my communities to create economic opportunity roughly twelve percent of census tracks around the country are being re classified as opportunity tones including almost all of Porter Rico conocer questioning just how beneficial these tax breaks will be to residents of low income areas and new reporting has emerged showing how this program has already been manipulated to further benefits the ultra wealthy for more on this I spoke with Justin Elliott a reporter at pro publica and Samantha Jacoby a senior tax legal analyst with the center on budget and policy priorities and I started by asking Justin to explain just what an opportunity zone is so this is a program that was created by president trump's tax law that was passed back in in twenty seventeen and the basic idea is to give series of tax breaks to people who make investments in poor areas around the country the goal is to incentivize new investment in the areas that need it most and there's an interesting history to these ritual get into in just a moment but let's let's focus on some of the latest news we just saw senator Cory Booker representative Emmanuel cleaver and representative Ron behind sent a letter to the treasury inspector general that would investigate the potential political influence on how these zones are selected what exactly are they talking about basically they're they're talking about the process by which the areas that are eligible for this tax break were selected so my colleague and I ProPublica and also other reporters at The New York Times have written a series of stories about how several very politically connected billionaires have to use their influence to get areas where they owned real estate made into these opportunities owns thereby qualifying them for this very lucrative tax break and doing it in ways that are potentially not really aligned with the original policy goals of the program the idea of using tax breaks to revitalize low income areas has been around for awhile where did it originate and how is the sort of legislation that we're seeing now different from its original intent as he said there there's sort of a long history of what's commonly called a place based tax incentives and and the idea is by encouraging investment in areas that are historically distressed where residents might have faced a systemic discrimination or lack of opportunity by encouraging investment in those places you might create widespread economic benefits new jobs things like that your examples of those going back to early nineties are things called enterprise zones new markets tax credits the difference here I think is that the opportunities on tax break is really centered around capital gains which primarily float to the top one percent of people so by definition these are gonna directly benefit wealthy investors and may or may not have benefits for low income residents of opportunities up before they they were rebranded opportunities owns and before the trump administration has created this new version of an opportunity zone did these ever work in the past did these enterprise improvement areas are business improvement districts or whatever we want to call them have they worked in the past Samantha I think there's Serena and mixed results the there's been criticisms of of these types of policies that they could be easier feeling gentrification and displacement of low income communities in these areas maybe they have some affect on job creation but it's not clear whether those jobs that are created are filled by residents of the is a low income areas or whether the jobs go to people from outside the areas so I talk a little bit about who's benefiting more but Justin we just talked about the news here that there are representatives who are who are concerned about how how these loans are being selected but wasn't Cory Booker a big supporter of the opportunities on program yeah absolutely it is a program that is very much had bipartisan support and actually existed as a standalone bill before it got put into the trump tax law Booker has definitely championed the idea I ELT sometimes refers to these areas as domestic emerging markets because that is the term uses and the idea of a in its current form anyways you can trace this back to Sean Parker whose Silicon Valley billionaire early Facebook investor who actually created a think tank in Washington DC to push this idea which it was ultimately successful so Samantha let's talk a little bit about how it works here is we are we're talking about things like capital gains and probably most folks like myself will not ever come near a capital gains so if I'm a wealthy investor and I'm looking at an opportunity stone what's going to drive me to what either create a business there or build a an apartment building there what what type of investment are these opportunities owns trying to attract and what's the benefit to people who are who have all this money to go there and and invest so just for a little background capital gains come from increases in value of expensive assets like stock or real estate typically only wealthy people have those and you know it's also important to know that capital gains aren't aren't really tax like other types of income like wages are salaries they're not taxed every year investors can actually avoid paying capital gains taxes by just holding on to their assets for over time and that itself is a big benefit and then when they actually are taxed at taxed at a lower rate than ordinary income but what this incentive actually says is Hey you know even if you sell your assets we'll give you extra tax benefits if you put that gain into an opportunity is on so the first thing is you you don't have to pay that tax that you would otherwise until twenty twenty six as long as you hold on to that investment and the opportunities on for a certain number of years and even then when you eventually do pay that tax you get a fifteen percent cut then the really big benefit comes later so all gain on your new opportunities on investment can be completely tax free as long as the investor hold on to it for at least ten years so what that does is that could create a really big benefit but particularly for projects that have the highest value for investors so just as an easy example an investor might get a much more generous tax break for say the high end real estate as opposed to investing in an affordable housing project Justin you have reported on a few places where these so called opportunities owns have really done what Samantha's laying out here which is benefited the extremely wealthy who have invested here one of the people we're talking about is a man named Dan Gilbert in Detroit who is he and how did he benefit from this opportunity zone Dan Gilbert is the billionaire founder of quicken loans the mortgage company he also owns the Cleveland Cavaliers basketball team in the last several years he's gone on a buying spree in downtown Detroit as some several billion dollars into buying up actually most of downtown Detroit my colleague and I did a story looking at how all these areas in downtown Detroit where Gilbert owns most of the buildings have been named opportunities out it's a one one of the themes that emerge from this was that Gilbert has a number of already planned developments including you know luxury residential developments skyscraper office towers and those are now in opportunities and so what we're looking at is him getting potentially getting tax breaks for projects that he was going to do anyway when the entire point of the program was to incentivize new investment downtown has actually been gentrifying in part because of Gilbert's previous investments in the last several years and in fact these areas of downtown when you look at the data are are much wealthier than the rest of the city but those are the areas the wealthier areas that got named opportunities on's where Gilbert RD owns a you know again billions of dollars worth of real estate and part of the reason they were named opportunities owns is that Dan Gilbert's lobbyist got involved at both the state and federal levels and so there we go with that brings us full circle back to the question about who is influencing who in choosing these opportunities sounds and whether or not they're being chosen because of political motives is that not right that's right so the way that the law was written that there's an enormous amount of autonomy given to the governor of each state so basically the federal government was in charge of deciding which areas around the country were eligible to be named opportunities owns and then that list went to each governor who got to pick a quarter of those as the opportunities and so we see in the in in multiple cases including Detroit where there were you know influential local businessman who lobbied the state and you know in the end the areas were where they already on property were named opportunities so that that's that's what happened to tried and then there's been other reporting about the lobbying having at the federal level and on the eligibility front Samantha were these opportunities owns necessary how are these created and and essentially inserted into the tax law so as anything just mentioned previously opportunities own legislation was originally introduced in twenty seventeen and and the early part of twenty seventeen with bipartisan support but then nothing really happened was that until the end of the year when policy makers were considering big twenty seventeen year end tax legislation that legislation was passed with an extremely rush process you would typically expect with legislation like this to see you know months long public hearings broad expert input on on all sides of the different issues similar to what happened and in nineteen eighty six when there was a major tax reform effort that took years to it to to pass where is this was kind of rushed through in just a couple of months and opportunities owns were sort of slipped into it without a lot of attention being paid to it and and I think kind of as a result of that there are a lot of holes that the treasury department had tend to fill through implementing regulations which actually gave treasury a lot of power to make important decisions about who can actually benefit what types of investment can qualify and you know what they could have done was add significant public protections to it to make sure that investments have public

Kevin Durant to sign one-and-one deal with Golden State Warriors
"The nba have remained as is you have kevin durant signing a one in one deal with the golden state warriors said essentially keeps their quote unquote death lineup where the hamptons five hour you want to call it intact for another season so we can expect the golden state warriors to get back to the nba finals i'm guessing the question for the warriors is the same thing that lebron james dealt with with dwayne wade and chris bosh with the heat sustaining that success over the course of the regular season and doing it again in the playoffs can be mentally taxing the golden state warriors very open about that with kevin durant saying the first year he was in golden state was a honeymoon season everything was fun it wasn't so much fun the following year but because the nba is so obsessed with speculation this one in one gives a max deals it allows the golden state warriors keep most most of us intact but it starts to speculation for twenty nineteen as to where he could end up so we're not done with this domino effect of who's going where based on kevin durant new contract deals like this that continue to make the nba the greatest league in the world mingka's you've got i it's the storylines tell an off on the court but superstars becoming free agents every year we were going gonna do this dance next year it's going to be kevin durant where's he going the offs is far more compelling than the actual season and for a for a free league that is very entertaining on the court that is saying something incredible and so look at the league gets it right durant yeah no longterm deal we'll be back here twelve months from now that's a win win for everyone including nba fans who love the drama the nba regular season is really just a preseason for free agency and if we're being honest that's all it is we're just we're just biding our time until we get to the real fun stuff chris paul's can stay with the houston rockets that's again one of those foregone conclusions houston rockets i mean they're just one game away from making the nba finals injuries also played into that so they have to feel good about where they were totally understand why they wanna keep going that direction and it also puts the bed the speculation that i saw during the regular season that lebron james could end up in houston they just don't have the space for it lebron james he's in l a he's going to have his conversations he's only going to have a phone conversation with the cleveland cavaliers my guess is he's gonna talk with the lakers i know philadelphia's also in that mix because of the cap because of how teams have stayed put in certain in certain situations like houston or in the case of oklahoma city with paul george there's really only three teams that would make a lot of sense to them in the east and if lebron james wants to get back to the finals the easiest path back to the finals then he's going to stay in the east despite the fact that dan gilbert has said through brian windhorst reporting and stephen a smith backing it up even though dan gilbert the owner of the cavaliers matt says he looks forward to try to build a championship team without lebron james dude you already had that opportunity once you got a couple of first round picks you never made the playoffs so they can get their issues aside and come back together for another season potentially because they're not going to get back to the playoffs without lebron james and if lebron james wants to get back to the finals his easiest path is not through the west with rebuilding with la it's back in cleveland or potentially something like philadelphia it's it's interesting because is it about getting back to the finals is it is it about that or is about winning a championship and and that's something that lebron james is is going to have to figure out because they saw this year that yeah they were how close i think he has to examine how close were we really to winning an nba championship sheriff gerald smith doesn't call that time out actually puts a back end and their one one going back to cleveland how different is the series i think dan gilbert i think that's just posturing that of just knowing the.
