Hold Income-Producing Real Estate In An IRA?
It might be one of those “best kept secrets”, but it’s true, you CAN include real estate investments in IRAs and gain the benefit of diversification plus the deferral or elimination of taxes on annual investment income and gains from sales.
What it takes is a “Self-Directed” IRA (SDIRA) and meeting specific IRS requirements. The SDIRA can be traditional or Roth type, but instead of being administered by a large investment firm or bank, you use a specialized SDIRA custodian approved by the IRS. You can roll over funds from an existing IRA when setting up an SDIRA.
