Self-Directed IRAs

An explosion of risk and reward

With this two-hour course, you will:

  • Are self-directed retirement arrangements worth the risk? Yes, if approached properly. But, how do you avoid detonating the explosives?
  • Review self-directed features for traditional IRAs, Roth IRAs, SEP IRAs, SIMPLE IRAs, individual 401(k)s, and HSAs
  • Get a list of landmines:
    • 401 (qualification); 
    • 408 (no collectibles); 
    • 4975 (no life insurance);
    • 514 (unrelated debt-financed income) and other fun topics
  • Avoid befuddling pitfalls such as:
    • A sale or lease to an IRA or using an IRA as security (this is a hot issue!) 
    • Sale or lease to IRA; 
    • Receiving management fee; 
    • Using IRA as security (hot one) and more
  • Understand the tax explosion of providing immediate financial gain to the account holder or a related person (and what does that mean?)
  • Which can be put in or must be left out: limited partnerships; venture capital; private stock; business startups (ever hear of a ROBS transaction?); LLCs and more
