Mr. Meadows introduced the following bill; which was referred to the Committee on Ways and Means
To amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to provide for designation of qualified opportunity zones every 10 years.
This Act may be cited as the
Creating Advancement and Personal Improvement in Targeted American Localities Act of 2019 or as the
CAPITAL Act of 2019.
Designation of qualified opportunity zones every 10 years
Section 1400Z–1 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 is amended by adding at the end the following new subsection:
Designation of zones every 10 years
Second round of designations
As of the first date (after enactment of this subsection) that no designation of a qualified opportunity zone remains is in effect by reason of the application of subsection (f), the provisions of this section shall be reapplied—
as though such provisions were enacted on such date,
and by substituting such date for—
the date of the enactment of Public Law 115–97 in subsection (b)(3), and
the date of the enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act in subsection (c)(2)(B).
Subsequent rounds of designations
Paragraph (1) shall be reapplied as of the first date that no designation of a qualified opportunity zone from the preceding round of designations remains in effect by reason of the application of subsection (f) to such round of designations.
Nothing in this subsection shall be construed to prevent the designation of a tract as a qualified opportunity zone merely because such tract was previously designated as such a zone if such tract otherwise meets the requirements for such designation as of the time of such subsequent designation.
The amendment made by this section shall take effect on the date of the enactment of this Act.
