Some IRAs and tax-advantaged plans make investments that incur a special tax. Unrelated Business Income Tax (UBIT) is the name for the tax assessed on profits derived from certain assets of IRAs or other plans. Specifically, a tax is levied either on the debt-leveraged portion of the net income of an asset, or on an operating business within an IRA, qualified plan, or other tax-advantaged account.
