The Self-Directed IRA Handbook
The Self-Directed IRA Handbook is the most widely used book in the self-directed IRA industry. The first edition was released in 2013 and sold over 20,000 copies. The Second Edition added 80 new pages of content and three new chapters (solo 401(k), cryptocurrency, valuations) with over 50 new citations. The Handbook, now in its Second Edition, clearly explains the prohibited transaction rules, investment structures, common self-directed IRA investment assets (real estate, private company, IRA/LLCs, private equity, hedge funds, crowdfunding, cryptocurrency, precious metals), and IRA tax pitfalls (UBIT & UDFI tax). The Handbook also includes extensive FAQs after each chapter, and nearly 150 citations to cases, statutes, rulings, and opinions from the IRS and DOL.
