How to enter a capital gain investment into an opportunity zone deferral?

Within 180 days I have invested a portion of my capital gains into an opportunity zone and would like to know how TurboTax treats this.

How to enter a capital gain investment into an opportunity zone deferral?

TurboTax for 2018 does not support deferring capital gain by investing in a qualified opportunity zone. There is no way to enter the deferral in TurboTax.

If the gain occurred in 2018, you have to report the gain and the deferral on your 2018 tax return, even if you made the investment in the opportunity zone in 2019.

This is a big gap in the software.  i am having to hire an accountant to do my taxes for major bucks.  When will this be fixed?

How to enter a capital gain investment into an opportunity zone deferral?

I'm in the same situation.  Sold an investment property in 2019 and have 180 days to invest into an Opportunity Zone fund.  But, need to calculate the capital gains.  I've hired an accountant, but they need more data than what TT provides to calculate the capital gains.  Anyone else have any luck in calculating their capital gains in the middle of the tax year?

How to enter a capital gain investment into an opportunity zone deferral?

As I understand from the IRS site I filed an amended return showing zero for the tax due on that portion of the cap gains reinvested in the Opportunity Zone.

How to enter a capital gain investment into an opportunity zone deferral?

Hi guys,  I will be selling my rental home and looking into doing a 1031 for an opportunity fund. No one in my friends circle know what I am talking about and I myself just discovered this option. Any leads into which opportunity zone fund to you've invested in and can refer me to look into something you've found to be giving stable returns. 

thank you,
