Tax Reporting

If my investment issuer requests a W-9, how do I fill out my W-9 properly for my IRA LLC?

Sometimes an investment issuer might ask for a W-9 on your IRA LLC in order to do tax reporting.

Why would I fill out a W-9?

If you have a single-member IRA LLC, you need to fill out the W-9 differently than an individual or a normal LLC. Investment issuers might need extra information in order to complete tax reporting for your investment and the issuer's 1099.

Do I have to do any special taxes for my IRA LLC?

No. If you are not taking distributions from the IRA, you should not have to add additional parts of your IRA LLC to a tax return.
