IRA Checkbook Control LLCs

The stock market is volatile, or you prefer to have a “hands-on” relationship with your investments. You want to hold physical metals in your IRA, but aren’t sure what is allowed. You want to buy, rehab, flip, or hold real estate, but contractors aren’t willing to wait for funds from your IRA account for payment.

You likely already have a self-directed IRA or 401K with a custodian, so you already know the benefits of handling your retirement account investments directly rather than relying on investment advisers making investment decisions for you. But you may want more speed and control in accessing those funds. A Checkbook Control SDIRA Limited Liability Company is the Answer!

Steps to Take

Call or e-mail us today to start the process of setting up your checkbook control SDIRA LLC. If your funds are not already held by a self-directed IRA custodian, you will roll over the funds from your current custodian to the new SDIRA custodian. Other steps to take include the following:

  1. Obtain information from you so that we can file the articles of organization to form the company.
  2. Draft the specialized operating agreement for the company that meets IRS guidelines.
  3. Prepare a subscription agreement if your current custodian requires one.
  4. File form SS-4 with the IRS to obtain a new tax identification number for the LLC.
  5. Open a bank account in the LLC’s name.
  6. Direct the custodian to transfer all funds from the custodian’s account to the LLC’s account.
  7. Write checks or use a debit card to access the LLC’s IRA funds for investments.

The whole process takes between 4 and 6 weeks, depending on the state division of corporations, the IRS, you, and your custodian.
