IRAs are a 5.4 Trillion dollar industry. Since market fluctuations in 2008 took a serious toll on IRA balances, more Americans than ever are looking to expand their IRA investment choices. The financial services industry is cranking out more self-directed IRAs (SDIRA) than ever. However, not all SDIRAs are created equally. Specifically, the May, 2013 Peek v. Commissioner decision sobered this fast growing concept and illuminated how important it is for SDIRA investors to know and play by the rules. Join attorney Frank Selden, as he assists practitioners who focus on guiding clients through the legal issues generated when clients gain direct investment control of their qualified funds. Specifically, Frank will reveal the legal issues that both attorneys and CPAs must know to properly counsel clients with SDIRAs.
I. Identify the three types of self-directed IRAs
II. Work with IRA custodians
III. Dissect prohibited transactions and effectively avoid them
IV. Identify incomes taxable to IRAs and report them

Frank focuses his practice on Rollover Business Startups, Self-Directed IRAs and Solo-Ks, and estate planning for business owners. Prior to law school he worked in banking and insurance. Frank is also a Judge Advocate in the Washington Army National Guard. He served two tours in Iraq. While some say he is an expert at self-directed retirement planning, Frank prefers to say his experience is active listening and creative thinking.
To ask Frank "what do you do with your free time" results in a blank stare. He is happily married. He and his lovely wife Barbara have 6 children and 4 grand children. Frank sometimes disappears for walks with his goldendoodle Loki or on a golf course.
