Opportunity Zones

The U.S. Federal Tax Cut and Jobs Act resulted in the creation of Opportunity Zones in 2017. Investments made in the development of property in certified zones may be eligible for preferential tax treatment under certain conditions. Seven census tracts are designated as Qualified Opportunity Zones (QOZ) in Victoria County, Texas. These certified tracts include:

  • 48469000100
  • 48469000201
  • 48469000202
  • 48469000301
  • 48469000302
  • 48469000700
  • 48469001601

The tracts are displayed in blue on the following map and include the downtown Victoria area, property along U.S. Hwy. 59 (I-69) and U.S. Business 59, as well as acreage in northern Victoria along N.
