NEW YORK, Oct. 17, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- IRA Financial Group, the leading provider of self-directed IRA and Solo 401(k) Plans launches Solo 401(k) plan leverage solution for real estate investors. In general, one is permitted to obtain financing through a loan or mortgage to purchase real estate or flip homes by using a solo 401(k) plan so long as the loan is nonrecourse. A nonrecourse loan is not a traditional mortgage as due to the IRS prohibited transaction rules, the 401(k) plan participant cannot personally guarantee the loan. "We have seen an increase in demand from real estate investors looking to use leverage with their retirement funds to flip homes or do real estate transactions without paying tax, as in the case of using a self-directed IRA," stated Adam Bergman, President of the IRA Financial Group.

According to Mr. Bergman, "The advantages of using a Solo 401(k) Plan to purchase real estate is that a nonrecourse loan can be used which could help leverage the property without triggering any tax or penalty. In contrast if using a self-directed IRA to purchase real estate, a tax would be imposed on the debt-financed portion of the property being purchased, which be as high as 37%. Pursuant to Internal Revenue Code Section 514(c)(9), the Unrelated Business Income Tax (UBTI) would not apply when using nonrecourse leverage as part of a Solo 401(k) real estate transaction. In other words, real estate investors can buy more real estate with their retirement funds with the hopes of generating a greater amount if tax-free income and gains."

IRA Financial Group's self-directed Solo 401(k) plan is unique and so popular because it is designed explicitly for small, owner only business.  With IRA Financial Group's solo 401K plan, self-employed individuals or small business owners with no employees can benefit by making high annual contributions – up to $55,000 - with an additional $6,000 catch-up contribution for those over age 50, make traditional as well as non-traditional investments, such as real estate, as well as borrow up to $50,000 or 50% of their account value tax-free and penalty free.
