  1. Greetings,
    I am trying to setup LLC, but its purpose is to tie to self directed IRA so that I can do some real estate investing, the custodian company saying legal zoom sets them up wrong and at the end it costs more to fix the mess, so they are advising to start fresh with CPA, do you have procedure you can share on how to setup LLC where IRA is member.


    This is all i have
    Form an IRA LLC with the professional assistance of either a seasoned tax attorney or experienced IRA LLC facilitator who specializes in setting up IRA LLC regularly, and can ensure the entity is set up to meet your specific investment needs.

    • Hi RP, IRA/LLCs are on our list, but we don’t have an information published on them yet. We recommend working with an attorney or professional who specializes in IRA/LLCs. Thanks.
