Here is a second Ecuador tax break. If you live in Ecuador… all income coming from abroad is tax free.
There is a third Ecuador tax break as well. There are no capital gains on occasional real estate sales.
So if you have a pension… and buy fixer uppers or make good buys in real estate to resell and make a profit… there is no tax… here.
Plus if you play it right all your travel to Ecuador may be tax deductible. Be sure to consult with your tax adviser to make sure you do this in the right way.

The Entrust Group are administrators of self-directed retirement plans and offer this IRA Debit Card together with an IRA Card Checking Account.

Self-directed IRA account holders can the card whixh is marketed under the Visa® brand, to pay for goods or services wherever Visa is accepted. It can also be used at ATMs around the world for cash withdrawals.
Unlike other retirement plan-linked cards, Entrust’s IRA Debit Card and Checking service does not have, or allow for, loans of any kind. Those are prohibited transactions. All available funds must be un-invested in the IRA (minimum $1,000 opening balance). Any transaction that is not an expense or asset purchase, for the IRA, is viewed as a distribution and will be administered as such.
IRA Card Checking transactions are considered distributions unless proven otherwise. Account holders have 30 calendar days, following a transaction, to submit the proper documentation to show that the expenditure was for an IRA asset. If the documentation does not reflect this, Entrust is legally required, and will file, reports to the IRS that indicate the amount of the payment taken from the IRA in question (IRS Form 1099-R).
It is impossible to overdraw on an Entrust IRA Card Checking account because, whether using the IRA Debit CardT or The IRA Checking, an individual is limited to only the funds that have been transferred to their IRA Card Checking account from the un-invested funds within their IRA. Any transaction that would exceed the account’s limit would be declined.
For people who are of the age that they must begin to take required minimum distributions – starting at 70 ½ years of age – distributions can be taken seamlessly at any ATM, making this the most convenient way for people to access their money.
