Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) have long been a popular choice for retirement investing. Standard IRAs, however, are just the start of what’s possible with a retirement account. A Self-Directed IRA (SDIRA) functions similarly to a standard IRA. The key difference is that an SDIRA allows you to invest beyond Wall Street in alternative assets such as real estate, private businesses, cryptocurrency, and more. You can also take this freedom a step further with a type of Self-Directed IRA called a Checkbook IRA.
If you’ve been considering opening a Self-Directed IRA, you might also be interested in gaining checkbook control of that SDIRA to turn it into a Checkbook IRA. Here’s what you need to know.
A Self-Directed IRA takes the tax-advantaged benefits of a standard IRA and supercharges them with more investment freedom and flexibility. As previously mentioned, the distinguishing feature that differentiates SDIRAs from standard IRAs is the opportunity to invest in alternative assets.
When placing investment transactions through a classic Self-Directed IRA, you will instruct your Self-Directed IRA custodian to execute the transactions on your behalf. If your investments are relatively transaction-heavy, such as rental properties, you may benefit from checkbook control.
To grant you checkbook control of your Self-Directed IRA, Broad Financial will assist you in setting up an IRS-compliant IRA LLC or Trust, followed by a dedicated checking account for your IRA. Just like that, you have the ability to write checks and send wires for your everyday investment transactions from Checkbook IRA’s checking account. Picture having the power to act on investment decisions in real-time while enjoying tax-advantaged growth of your retirement funds. With Broad Financial’s Checkbook IRA, you gain:
