I had a new self directed Roth LLC check book account set up with IRA Services Trust Co. as the custodian. It was set up with the trust co. as a member and me as the manager. One of the powers of the manager is to; 1. Borrow money from any Person for any Company purpose on whatever terms and conditions the Manager deems advisable, to obligate the Company to repay the borrowed money, and in connection therewith to encumber or hypothecate Company property as security for such repayment by mortgage, deed of trust, pledge or otherwise;

OK my question: I have a fair amount of business credit (through a Sole Proprietorship entity not in my name, but owned by me) that I would like to deposit to a third person's account.(no relation) Then ‘as the manager' borrow that money from the third person account for the Roth LLC for investing in a managed trading account. Is this doable or is there a safe way to do this process?

Tax Professional: socrateaser, Lawyer replied 5 years ago
If the IRS is able to connect the dots between your credit to the third party and the loan to your IRA, then the IRA will be declared invalid and fully taxable on any accumulated income -- because the transaction will have actually taken place with a "disqualified person" (you). As an arm's length transaction with a third party, however, you can borrow the money and use it for your purposes within the IRA.

So, to paraphrase the immortal words of the late President, Richard M. Nixon, "Don't get caught."

Hope this helps.

So is there a way to create a separate business entity (LLC or corporation) that would act as holding company for the IRA. Then I would transfer funds to that entity?
Tax Professional: socrateaser, Lawyer replied 5 years ago
I can't help you to set up a shell business entity to permit you to violate federal tax law. I could lose my license. Sorry, but I must draw the line here.
