Is the question about taxes? If so, a self-directed IRA is like any other IRA. In fact, when you get down to it, aren't all IRAs self-directed? They all belong to an individual, as opposed to a company plan, and can be invested in just about anything. (Except life insurance or collectibles.)

I presume you mean your IRA is in a brokerage account where you select individual securities on your own, as opposed to mutual funds.

If it's about investment issues, well, the fact it's an IRA account may or may not be pertinent.
