Self Directed Roth IRA LLCSelf-Directed Roth IRA Tax Strategies


Using a Self-Directed Roth IRA LLC presents a number of exciting tax planning opportunities. Whether you currently have a Traditional IRA or a Roth IRA, the IRA Financial Group’s in-house tax and ERISA professionals have significant experience helping clients use a Self-Directed Roth IRA LLC to maximize their tax benefits and investment returns.

Investment Tax Strategies:

The primary advantage of using a Self-Directed Roth IRA LLC to make investments is that all income and gains associated with the Roth IRA investment grow tax-free and will not be subject to tax upon withdrawal or distribution. This is because unlike traditional IRAs, you are generally not subject to any tax upon taking Roth IRA distributions once you reach the age of 59 1/2. This presents a number of exciting tax strategies, a few of which are described below:

Roth Conversion Valuation Discount Tax Strategies:

The amount of taxable income on a Roth conversion is based on the fair market value of the IRA assets subject to the conversion. Therefore, the lower the fair market value of the IRA assets the lower the taxes that will be due on the Roth conversion. In general, pursuant to case law, the standard of “fair market value” is an objective test using hypothetical buyers and sellers. Furthermore, in determining the valuation of an LLC, the assets to be valued must be the interests in the entity. The IRA Financial Group’s retirement tax professionals in conjunction with a number of valuation experts have developed a structure that will allow you to take a discount when determining the fair market value of the IRA assets subject to the Roth conversion, thus, reducing the amount of tax you will have to pay on the conversion.

The Roth Conversion Valuation Discount Strategy is based on tested case law. The valuation discounts applicable to an LLC with IRA assets typically fall into two categories: (1) a discount for lack of control, and (2) a discount for lack of marketability. The retirement tax professional at the IRA Financial Group along with a valuation expert will help develop a customized Roth conversion tax strategy that will allow you to take a discount of anywhere from 15% to 35% on the value of the IRA assets subject to the Roth conversion. The Roth Conversion Valuation Discount Strategy can save you thousands of dollars in taxes and is based on established case law.

For example, if you have a Traditional IRA and want to convert to a Self-Directed Roth IRA LLC to purchase raw land, real estate, precious metals, or invest in an investment fund, using the Roth Conversion Valuation Discount Strategy can save you thousands of dollars on the conversion.
