UPDATED: How Congress is About to Shut Down Your Business (and what you can do about it) with John Hyre


Tax attorney John Hyre has posted an Oct. 28th update:

Democratic Anti-SDIRA/401k Proposals Are Dead: Per the American Society of Pension Professionals & Actuaries, ALL of the IRA & 401k provisions have been dropped from the reconciliation bill. Source.

Good news! Earlier...

Hyre lays out all the reasons why investors must write letters to their representatives in Congress to protest proposed "Build Back Better" legislation that would gut investors' ability to invest in real estate using their self-directed IRAs. It could also cause a forced distribution.

John gave a presentation to Vena Jones-Cox's Ohio REIA, which you can watch above, and he has shared his slideshow with us. Vena has also shared a document explaining why this legislation should not be passed — and you can borrow from it in order to write your own representative.

Please write your Congress representative soon and give him or her specifics on how your self-directed IRA has helped turn vacant properties back into attractive and affordable housing, how it has helped put people into homes, how it has helped tradespeople make a living — and how it is helping you to build a nest egg that will support you in retirement, reducing your need to turn to the government for support. And if funds from other people's IRAs have helped you do any of these things, please mention that too.
