A Self Directed IRA, also called a Self-Directed IRA LLC with “checkbook control,” is an IRS-approved structure that allows one to use their retirement funds to make real estate and other investments tax-free and without custodian consent. The IRA Financial Group explained that the Self Directed IRA involves the establishment of a limited liability company (LLC) that is owned by the IRA (care of the IRA custodian) and managed by the individual or any third-party.
