Prohibited Transactions

While self-directed retirement plans allow you investment control of a wide range of assets, there are some transactions and investments to be cautious of. The basic concept of an IRA is that it is a trust intended to benefit you when you retire. When you invest through a self-directed account, your IRA, not you, owns the investment. You own the account. As such, there are some types of self-directed transactions that could disqualify your IRA and subject it to taxation and penalties.
