Frequently Asked Questions
We understand that navigating the self-directed terrain can be complex. We’ve listed a few frequently asked questions to help.
Yes! You can typically combine multiple retirement accounts and invest the funds into a single IRA to maximize your buying power.
We recommend that you consult with a qualified CPA or tax advisor before making any significant financial decision.
Limited liability companies, limited partnerships, and other entities that carry on an unrelated business or borrow funds to finance the acquisition of property may generate Unrelated Business Taxable Income (“UBTI”).
UBTI is generally reported on a Schedule K-1 issued by the related entity. If the UBTI attributable to your IRA exceeds $1,000 for any taxable year, IRS Form 990-T must be filed and sent to the IRS with the appropriate amount of tax, payable from your IRA account.
For more information on UBTI, please refer to IRS Publication 598, visit www.irs.gov and/or consult with a qualified CPA or tax advisor.
No, the IRS requires any Contributions (or Distributions to yourself) to go directly through the IRA to ensure reporting accuracy. When making a Contribution to the IRA you will need to send funds directly to the custodian. Once the funds have been placed in the IRA, you can direct the custodian to send the funds to your Checkbook IRA checking account.
