Self-Directed IRA LLCs: The Best of all Worlds

The self-directed IRA LLC gives you one hundred percent control over how you invest. Most investors lack this ability.
It’s not the right move for everybody, but if you want to truly maximize the return on your investment, and you don’t mind going the extra mile to set up a company that handles your funds, there are some very sexy benefits.

1. Tax Benefits

You will get tax deferral and tax-free through your LLC along with the benefits of a traditional IRA. All income and gains generated by your IRA LLC will land in your IRA tax-free.
You’re IRA LLC will also grow tax-free. This is the tax equivalent of finding El Dorado. It is possible. You will pay tax on distributions, but all of your growth is tax-free.

2. Options for Diversification

If this doesn’t get you excited, you don’t have a pulse. With a self-directed IRA LLC you can invest in anything, including real estate and private business entities.
I know you kids love my man Randy. Randy, that sly old fox, invested in his own fishing business with his IRA LLC and got WINDFALL fishing up off the ground without giving the IRS a dime. That’s why he catches so many
fish. Randy is a whale.

You don’t need to grow your own business with your retirement’s funds of course. You’ll be making fat stacks of green with a solid portfolio in both bad times and good if you diversify.

3. Access to Your Own Account

You aren’t retiring and starting an IRA LLC to have a boss. With this option you will have direct access to your IRA funds. You can make an investment quickly and efficiently. No need for approvals. No need to pay a custodian. It’s just you baby, and you’re calling the shots.

4. Speed

The handmaiden of access. If you want to make an investment, all you need to do is write a check. You can transfer funds straight from your LLC bank account.

5. Lower Fees

No custodian means one less person to pay. There are also no account valuation fees.

6. Limited Liability

Any assets you hold outside of the LLC are protected from litigation against the LLC. This is important for real estate investors, as claims arising from defects in the design or construction improvements are subject to statutes of limitations.

7. Asset and Creditor Protection

You are covered for up to a million in bankruptcy protection. Markets do have massive fluctuations. It’s good to be backed up.
The Self-Directed IRA LLC is like an IRA on steroids. If you want to take back control of your finances, get yours in the game.
