The LLC Operating Agreement for a Self-Directed IRA

The LLC Operating Agreement is the core document that is referred to when issues concerning the LLC need to be resolved. The LLC Operating Agreement is the most important document for your Self Directed IRA. It is extremely important that you create an Operating Agreement for your Self Directed IRA LLC.

The standard LLC Operating Agreement will not meet the requirements for your Self-Directed IRA LLC. In general, a self directed IRA LLC Operating Agreement should include special tax provisions relating to “Investment Retirement Accounts” and “Prohibited Transactions” pursuant to Internal Revenue Code Sections 408 and 4975. In addition, since the LLC will be managed by a manager and not the member, the Operating Agreement would need to include special management provisions.

It is extremely important to have a properly prepared Operating Agreement to fit the needs of your LLC and meet the requirements of the Internal Revenue Service for a Self Directed IRA LLC. In fact, a copy of the LLC Operating Agreement will be required by the Custodian and also by the bank where you will have your LLC’s checking account.
