$30,000,000 Opportunity Zone Tax Credits Issued by the Ohio Development Services Agency in Inaugural Round

Sikora Law’s Clients (40 successful applicants) were awarded approximately 20% of the $30,000,000 Ohio Opportunity Zone tax credits issued for 2019 investments in Ohio Opportunity Zones, a figure that we believe exceeds any firm in the state.

In 2019 Mike worked closely with the Senator who sponsored the Bill that became Ohio’s Opportunity Zone law as well as provided expert testimony on behalf of NAIOP to the Ohio General Assembly in support of the passage of that Bill.  These efforts have resulted in one of the most beneficial Opportunity Zone tax credit programs in the country.

Sikora Law utilized its expertise and unique perspective on this new law to maximize the financial benefits of this fantastic new program for our Clients.  If you are considering an Opportunity Zone investment, or if you have questions about how you can make the most of Ohio’s Opportunity Zone program, contact the Sikora Law Team.

Breach of Contract Statute of Limitations Might Drop

Ohio House Bill 251 would shorten the statute of limitations for actions upon a contract, and it recently had a second Hearing in the Senate after passing in the House.  Ohio’s statute of limitations for breach of written contracts was significantly reduced from 15 years to 8 years in 2012 – not that long ago, when it comes to legislative action.  House Bill 251 would further reduce to 6 years the statute of limitations for breach of written contracts.  To review the latest version of House Bill 251, click here.
