Detroit lies in the state of Michigan which has conformed to the federal tax code since Opportunity Zone legislation was implemented in the IRC. Both the city and state have adopted these new provisions.

Out of the 299 census tracts that exist within, or partially within the city of Detroit 72 have been designated eligible for Qualified Opportunity Fund investment. This represents approximately 24.08% of the census tracts in the city. Of the zones that are eligible, 71 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. Detroit lies in the state of Michigan 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. Michigan has 288 opportunity zones, which means Detroit contains 25.00% of the Qualified Opportunity Zones that exist within the state.
