  1. Say an individual's self-directed IRA owns a business, and the individual is curious which (if any) services he can provide to the business (ex. offer consulting services). Question is, does this run afoul of the prohibited transaction rules? I'm thinking yes, with respect to Code Sec. 4975(c)(1)(C) - because it would involve a disqualified person furnishing services to a plan asset (akin to the individual being prohibited from providing free labor/repairs to an investment property owned by the self directed IRS). Curious if others agree, or have other thoughts.
  2. What are your thoughts on whether an ERISA plan can participate in a private equity fund that invests in a medical marijuana processing company?
  3. Can a one-man (non-ERISA) qualified plan invest in a rental property located outside the U.S.?
  4. If a broker incorrectly placed trades and after correcting the mistakes and making the plan whole there are additional profits that resulted from the original mistake who is entitled to the profits? What support is there for that position?
  5. Participant wants to purchase rental property as an investment in his self-directed 401(k) account. Just throwing this out there, but does anyone suggest any good sources that cover the issues related to this sort of transaction? Any books, articles, IRS guidance, etc., that talk about the aspects of this transaction as the property is brought in the trust, issues while it is held in the Plan trust, issues that arise when the property is disposed by the trust, how the property is valued for ERISA and 5500 purposes, how the property can/cannot be used by the participant, etc.? Thanks in advance.
  6. I have a participant directed 401(k) plan. I plan to have money transferred into my account after the close of the market today so it will sit in my 401(k) plan account until Monday uninvested. If I change my investment election of future money on Monday morning, will the investment of the money received on Friday night be invested in accordance with my new investment elections that I made on Monday morning or will it be done using my investment election at the time the money was received on Friday night? Does anyone know what the rules are with this? Thank you!!
  7. Physician client has investments in a surgery center, C-Class Shares. Client does use the surgery center to conduct surgery for his patients, as do other physicians. Is this a prohibited transaction issue? Does it matter that the retirement plan owns non-voting C-Class Shares?
