| Money Talk|| Self Directed IRA Tax/Real estate - XanderCrews on 6/29/13 at 7:29 pm|
This is specific question dealing with real estate. Does anyone know if this scenario is legal.
I buy a property with IRA funds as self directed (avoiding the monies being taxed as income) and then rent to my daughter for housing while she is in college. I would charge a fair market price.
