Milwaukee lies in the state of Wisconsin 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 221 census tracts that exist within, or partially within the city of Milwaukee 35 have been designated eligible for Qualified Opportunity Fund investment. This represents approximately 15.84% of the census tracts in the city. Of the zones that are eligible, 35 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. Milwaukee lies in the state of Wisconsin 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. Wisconsin has 120 opportunity zones, which means Milwaukee contains 29.17% of the Qualified Opportunity Zones that exist within the state.
