Can my Self Directed IRA LLC make an investment in a "S" Corporation?
In general, under the “ S” Corporation rules, an IRA is not permitted to be an “S” Corporation shareholder. In order to be considered an “S” corporation, shareholders must be U.S. citizens or residents and must be natural persons, so corporate shareholders, partnerships, and multi-member LLCs are excluded. The IRS has ruled in a Revenue Ruling that an IRA is not a qualified shareholder for “S” Corporation purposes.
