Understanding the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017

American Association of Port Authorities

Learn how census tract-based federal designations could mean opportunity, empowerment and real economic development and growth for your port. This informative conversation co-presented by Best Best & Krieger LLP Partner Ruben Duran, who is general counsel to the Port of Hueneme, will look in-depth at the new Opportunity Zones created under the authority of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, along with other, pre-existing federal programs aimed at spurring economic development and growth in the nation’s most-challenged cities and rural areas. Ports can and should be thinking about how to use these tools to leverage public-private partnerships for needed capital and other incentives for growth and advancement of jobs and economic benefits created by maritime industry, well beyond the borders of their port facilities.
