Reduction in maximum corporate tax rate to 20% expected to increase use of C Corporation blocker for self-directed IRA private equity and real estate investment deals
Adam Bergman, a partner with the IRA Financial Group, the leading provider of self-directed IRA LLC and Solo 401(k) plan solutions, expects to see a significant increase in the number of C Corporation blockers used in light of the Republican tax plan to reduce the top corporate tax rate from 35% to 20%. Because using a self-directed IRA or 401(k) plan to make certain investments in businesses via passthrough entities, such as an LLC or real estate transactions involving debt can trigger the unrelated business taxable income tax, also known as UBIT or UBTI, which can go as high as 39.6%, using a C Corporation blocker strategy could reduce the tax to 20%. “The reduction in the maximum corporate tax rate to 20% should make the C Corporation blocker strategy quite attractive for many self-directed IRA investors facing a 39.6% tax rate if their IRA or 401(k) investment triggered the UBTI/UBIT tax,” stated Adam Bergman, a partner with the IRA Financial Group.
