<<<I just visited this site for the first time. I was reading the articles on IRA's and I ran across this statement, "remember that you can put just about anything you want into an IRA account." Does that include real estate? My husband and I want to invest in real estate. Is there a way to make at least a portion of the funds we invest tax deferred?>>>As far as I know, you can't invest your IRA in the real estate directly. I would imagine you can buy REITs in the IRA account if you want an exposure to the real estate.Besides, investing in real estate already provides you with nice tax advantages as it is so I am not sure what benefit will you gain by putting these investments into an IRA account.<<<Also, we are self-employed/sole proprietors? Can we do a SIMPLE IRA or is that only for corporations? Is the $6000 limit tax deferred or only a portion of it?>>>As self-employed individuals, you can open SIMPLE-IRA account and contribute money into it on a tax-deferred basis.Vlad
