In late 2021 I invested in a Qualified Opportunity Zone (QoZ) that closely aligned with my values. This year, I haven't heard from them for various requests of mine (typically before April 2022 and even after, for tax docs for the investment).
I called the founder, the number listed on their site, emailed them, etc. Curious to see what may be going on, I looked up news articles and see that they are caught up in some lawsuits/small claims etc.
(As an investor I would be upset to lose money that I earmarked for a cause that I believed in but that's the risk with investments anyway.)
My tax preparer needs the EIN or Tax ID to be able to complete filing taxes (we already applied for an extension). How can I find this info if they don't respond?
In the worst case if they shut shop, then how might I go about getting my money back?
The investment was for a SAFE (Simple Agreement for Future Equity). I have the signed SAFE with me. The LLC was created for this purpose to be able to qualify for a tax deferral (given it is a QoZ).
