IRA LLC for husband and wife | Both Spouses IRA LLC

QUESTION: Can I create a single IRA LLC that manages both my Self-Directed IRA and my wife’s Self-Directed IRA using the same bank account?

ANSWER: Yes both spouses (husband and wife) can invest their respective self-directed IRAs in an IRA LLC. You are describing a multi member LLC (i.e., an LLC consisting of two members). In your particular case, this means that if both of your respective self-directed IRAs invest in a newly created LLC containing the necessary IRA language (hence the name IRA LLC) it will be deemed a multi-member LLC.

What’s more, since both of your self-directed IRAs would invest in the IRA LLC, only one bank account is necessary for the LLC. Thus, only one checkbook would be issued listing both of you as the managers of the LLC.  Investments made by the IRA owned LLC in alternative investments such as real estate would be titled in the name of the LLC.

Thank you,
