Self Directed IRA LLC

Maintain control of your IRA, investments, and retirement.

A Self-Directed IRA allows retirement investors to use IRA funds to make alternative asset investments.  Self-Directed IRAs are like other IRAs, but they allow IRA owners MANY more investment options. Using a Self-Directed IRA, you can diversify your IRA investments outside of stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and other traditional assets. You can continue to make those investments, but you are also allowed to invest in the following:

  • Purchase, sell, and rent commercial or residential real estate.
  • Non-traditional investments, including foreign properties or mortgage notes.
  • Buy foreclosed properties or tax liens.
  • Maintain traditional investments, including stocks, bonds and CDs.
  • Buy, and hold in your possession, precious metals.
  • Make loans to others or partner with others in investments
  • Invest in private placements
  • Perhaps best of all, you can decide to invest with as much or as little risk as you choose. How you choose to use the funds in your self-directed IRA to make permitted investments is entirely up to you. The profits from your investments are returned to your self-directed IRA, allowing you to experience tax-free growth of your retirement fund.

To provide even more flexibility and control, investors can establish a Self-Directed IRA LLC. The Self-Directed IRA LLC with "checkbook control" is accomplished by having your Self-Directed IRA establish a Limited Liability Company (LLC). Your IRA owns the LLC as its only member and you, as the IRA holder, manage the LLC. This setup gives you "checkbook control" over your retirement funds, allowing you to invest in almost any asset and allowing you to take advantage of time-sensitive investments as easily as writing a check or wiring funds from the Self-Directed IRA LLC bank account.

In a Self-Directed IRA LLC, a custodian does not need to consent to investments you make. This prevents the normal delays that can occur if you have to wait for custodian-required paperwork to make an investment. You, as manager of the LLC, determine which investments you want to make. The Self-Directed IRA LLC structure provides maximum flexibility and allows you to make as many investments as you want through the same IRA LLC.

A Self-Directed IRA LLC works for all types of individual retirement accounts:

  • Traditional (pre-tax) IRA
  • Roth IRA
  • Simple IRA
