Gold, silver, and platinum bars and coins can be purchased through a Self-Directed IRA account. Specific criteria as to the purity and the origin of these precious metals is detailed out in the Self-Directed IRA rules, but the owner of the IRA has full control in choosing the precious metal dealer and which of these approved metals they wish to purchase.
Self-Directed IRA Real Estate Investments
Real estate investments through a Self-Directed IRA may include residential or commercial properties in the U.S. or abroad in a variety of forms. Specific restrictions apply to the purchase of real estate for personal use, along with several other personal benefit restrictions.
Self-Directed IRA Rules on Prohibited Assets & Transactions
In spite of the broad range of assets available through Self-Directed IRA investing, the IRS maintains a list of prohibited asset types and transactions which would remove the tax status of a Self-Directed IRA account. Understanding what the investing rules are and how they apply to your individual situation is critical in the area of Self-Directed IRA investing and a primary reason why many would-be investors have shied away from these opportunities in the past. Our goal at Provident Trust Group is to make Self-Directed IRA investing more accessible to the average investor.
