Bakersfield lies in the state of California which has decoupled itself from federal tax code provisions regarding Opportunity Zone tax deferral and treatment.

Out of the 82 census tracts that exist within, or partially within the city of Bakersfield 16 have been designated eligible for Qualified Opportunity Fund investment. This represents approximately 19.51% of the census tracts in the city. Of the zones that are eligible, 16 qualify as a low-income community. This means the poverty rate was above 20%, or that the median household income was below 80% of the state or metropolitan area’s median household income.

The remaining zones qualified as contiguous, meaning they were located adjacent to an eligible tract, and the median household income did not exceed 125% of that eligible tract. Bakersfield lies in the state of California which automatically conforms to the federal tax code as it is amended. Both the city and state have adopted the new Qualified Opportunity Zone provisions. California has 879 opportunity zones, which means Bakersfield contains 1.82% of the Qualified Opportunity Zones that exist within the state.
