What is an IRA LLC?
An IRA LLC is a Limited Liability Company that is owned and funded by your self-directed IRA. It functions just like a “typical” LLC with which you are familiar. It will be assigned a tax ID number and this tax ID number will be used to set up a business checking account, just like any business would. This structure is also referred to as a Checkbook IRA LLC.
Simply put, the LLC will be owned by the IRA. The LLC will be managed by you, the IRA owner.
How Does an IRA LLC Work?
You, as manager, buy and sell just like you would within any “typical” LLC.
KEEP IN MIND:
- The money used to fund the LLC must come from your retirement account.
- Any investment purchased with the IRA LLC must list the LLC as the owner or investor, not you as an individual.
- All income and/or gains from your IRA LLC investments must go directly back into the IRA LLC checking account.
- Any expenses related to your investments must be paid from the IRA LLC checking account.
