Pay taxes now on the seed and your investments grow tax-free in a self-directed Roth IRA

One of the best ways to save for retirement is with a Mountain West self-directed Roth individual retirement account. Why? Because the growth and income on your investments are free from federal income tax as long as certain conditions are met.

If your current Roth IRA doesn’t allow for self-direction, you may transfer the funds to a Mountain West self-directed Roth IRA so that you may choose alternative investments you know best.

Currently, you may jump start a tax-free IRA by converting your traditional IRA to a self-directed Roth IRA. While this is a taxable event, your investments will grow tax free. There is no longer any income limitation to convert a traditional IRA into a Roth IRA.

Other advantages of a Roth IRA are contributions may be made as long as you earn income even after you are 70½ years old and there are no required distributions at any time. In most cases, a Roth IRA Holder may withdraw the principal amounts invested without any tax liability.
