Guide to Filling out an IRA LLC Operating Agreement Form

If you decide to control your retirement pension fund by creating an IRA LLC, or limited liability company, then you will have to fill out some paperwork which will constitute the operating agreement form. You can then use the IRA LLC to invest in a number of different areas, including real estate, or in small local businesses that need funding. You can choose to run the LLC as a sole proprietorship fund, with no-one else involved, or you can run it with a number of other members, all contributing their share of the IRA fund. In order to control and manage the IRA LLC legally, the operating agreement form must be filled out soon after founding.

Build Your LLC

Before you can fill in the operating form, you need to build up the IRA LLC. Start by calling your local government Department of the Secretary of State. You should request the application package which will help you to form the limited company around your IRA. You will have to fill out several different forms at once, so make sure that you have all of your financial details on hand. You should also ask for a list of the fees, so you know how much you need to set up the LLC.

Decide on the Management

When you have the application package, you should decide whether you will be filling out the forms as the only manager, for a sole-proprietorship, or if you want to have a number of members. It is not rare for members of a family to get together and share an IRA LLC, although you can also do this with friends, neighbors, and work colleagues. Fill out the forms which ask you for the registered agent. If the forms are being sent to you, then you are that agent.

Filling out the Form

Start by writing out the name of your limited company in its complete form. This must end with some variation of the phrase Limited Liability Company, or the initials LLC. You will have to reserve or register the name of the company, in order to ensure that it has not been taken by another business in your state. You can also search online to find out if the name has been registered in your state. You should then proceed down the form filling in all the details about the operating of the LLC. This is vital, since if you do not fill out the form, you will be subject to the operating laws of your state, simply by default.

Make the Company Legal

Once you have filled out the form, you should then send it in. Check with your state to make sure that you are not required to announce the foundation of the company in local newspapers. If so, place the advertisement for two weeks. You may then decide to get a business license and permits. You should also apply for a business identification number from the IRS.
