New tax cuts are in effect for 2018, which means small businesses have new calculations to understand their bottom line. Those who hold small business equity in Self-Directed IRAs are just as interested to know how these tax cuts might benefit them. Some of these changes in the tax system - including a cut from 35 percent to 21 percent in the corporate tax rate - could do a lot to affect the value of Self-Directed IRAs.

Because Self-Directed IRAs can hold private equity in companies just as well as public stock, these lower corporate tax rates free up more money for reinvestment. But many of the beneficiaries will be small business—which can impact Self-Directed IRA owners the most. For example, a limit on tax deductions for small business and qualified property was expanded from $500,000 to $1,000,000. If an investor owns a significant portion of a small business that currently needs this expansion in tax benefits, it could stand to fuel a lot of growth in the coming years.

“There’s a lot to like about the changes in tax structure for 2018,” said Jim Hitt. “Even if you’re looking at this from a pure business angle, those who hold Self-Directed IRAs—as well as private company equity in that retirement account—may notice that the favorable tax structure can help fuel growth.”

JIm Hitt was quick to point out that this change in tax structure was no guarantee of future results. An entire section on “Drawbacks” caps off the article at the end, in which JIm Hitt explains that interest deductions are now limited to 30 percent of the business’s adjusted taxable income. There is no “one-size fits all” approach in the tax structure that will benefit everyone’s Self-Directed IRAs in the same way.

“It’s important to know how these policies can affect a business,” said Jim Hitt. “Not only does it make an investor more aware of what they have in their portfolio, but it shows why it can be so vital to pay attention to the news and understand the current business climate. These stories matter for finance—both on a personal level and when it comes to retirement.”
