Keep your retirement safe AND get all of the Augusta Home Delivery Gold IRA’s unique advantages. Roll over all or part of your existing IRA, 401(k) or other retirement plan into a gold IRA that's delivered directly to your home.
The U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and the Internal Revenue Code provide some guidance on the set-up and maintenance requirements for self-directed IRAs. Here are the basic steps.
- Contact Augusta
We assign a personal account executive to follow you through the process. This person helps you fill out an application to open a new self-directed IRA with a new custodian and prepare to transfer funds.
- Transfer Funds
This new custodian requests a transfer of your retirement funds from the current custodian of your IRA, 401(k), 404(b), SEP IRA or Keogh plan. The transfer is tax-free and penalty-free.
- Create LLC
Augusta’s recommended attorney creates a Limited Liability Company (LLC) for your new self-directed IRA and appoints you sole manager. The LLC conforms to all rules and regulations for self-directed IRA LLCs.
- Purchase LLC
You sign documents to instruct your new self-directed IRA to purchase the LLC. The new self-directed IRA owns the LLC.
- Open Checking Account
You open a checking account in the name of your LLC at your preferred, qualified bank. Your new custodian wires funds into your new LLC checking account in the amount you designate.
- Buy Gold
You use your LLC’s checking account to buy gold. Your Augusta personal account executive helps you build your precious metals portfolio.
- Take Delivery
You and your attorney decide where to store it in accordance with IRS rules and guidance on storage.

See answers to common questions below, or call us at 855-242-4121.
Q. What Is an Augusta Home Delivery Gold IRA?
A: The Augusta Home Delivery Gold IRA is a self-directed IRA that enables you to invest in IRS-approved physical gold, silver and other precious metals, then have those approved metals delivered to your doorstep. As the sole manager of the LLC, you can freely purchase IRS-approved physical precious metals for your IRA using the LLC’s checking account.
Q. Can I be assured that a home delivery gold IRA is allowed by the IRS?
A: While the IRS has recognized the validity of using an LLC to make investments for a self-directed IRA, the IRS has not provided clear guidance on the legality of using this structure specifically for the purpose of investing in precious metals to be delivered to your door and stored at home or in a Safe Deposit Box in the name of the LLC. However, multiple attorneys retained by Augusta believe that the home delivery gold IRA structure and the delivery and storage procedures described on this website are legal under specific conditions. (See Attorney Opinion Letters). Please note, these letters were prepared solely for Augusta, and sharing them with you in no way creates an attorney-client relationship between you and any of these attorneys.
Q. Can I store my IRA precious metals at home?
A:The attorneys retained by Augusta (See Attorney Opinion Letters) believe that certain precious metals, namely American Eagle coins, may be stored at home, in accordance with the Internal Revenue Code (26 U.S.C. §408(m)(3)(A)). However, Augusta’s attorneys believe it is wiser to store metals in a safety deposit box in the name of the LLC at a U.S. bank, because storing precious metals held in an IRA at home has high risks of inadvertently engaging in a prohibited transaction and because the IRS has not provided clear guidance on the issue.
Q. Can I store my IRA precious metals in a bank safe deposit box?
A: The attorneys retained by Augusta (See Attorney Opinion Letters) believe that all precious metals held within an IRA may be stored in a bank safe deposit box in the name of the LLC because, in their opinion, such storage meets the code requirement that the precious metals be stored in the physical possession of a trustee. Again, the IRS has not issued clear guidance on whether bank safe deposit box storage would meet the requirement that the precious metals be stored in the physical possession of a trustee, so it is important that you fully understand the risks associated with this type of storage. Because you cannot rely on the opinions of Augusta’s attorneys, it is very important that you seek your own legal advice on this matter.
Q. Are there risks involved with a home delivery gold IRA?
A: As with all speculative investments, there is a degree of risk involved. Past performance might not predict future returns. The price of precious metals fluctuates over time and investors might lose money. If your home delivery gold IRA is not set up properly, if you engage in a prohibited transaction, or if it is determined that home delivery or home or bank safe deposit box storage are not permitted by the IRS, you could lose your tax exempt status and have to pay taxes and penalties. To move ahead confidently with the opening of any Augusta home delivery IRA, it is very important that you consult with your own legal, tax and investment professionals, so you can fully understand the risks.

Q. Can I roll over my current IRA or old 401(k) retirement savings?
A: Yes, you can roll over funds from your traditional IRA, Roth IRA, 401(k) and 403(b) to your Augusta Home Delivery Gold IRA.
Q. Do I have to use a custodian for my Augusta Home Delivery Gold IRA?
A: Yes, this is a requirement of the IRS. However, once your Augusta Home Delivery Gold IRA is set up, you have control of your money and precious metals.
Q. What kinds of precious metals can I invest in?
A: Generally, you may invest in coins minted by the U.S. government as legal tender, such as American Gold Eagles and American Silver Eagles (1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz and 1/10 oz). Further, you may invest in certain coins of gold, silver or platinum minted by other nations as legal tender. Consult with your accountant or tax specialist to confirm current regulations.
Q. Can I defer paying income taxes on my self-directed IRA LLC until retirement?
A: Yes. Self-directed IRA LLCs have the same tax-deferment benefits and penalties as more common retirement plans. However, it’s imperative you consult with your accountant or tax specialist to apply current regulations to your specific situation.
