If you’re new to iStoring Your Investmentnvesting in Precious Metals, the last thing you want is to put that investment in jeopardy. That’s why it’s important to choose the best way to store your Precious Metals. Whether you’ve invested in Gold bullion, Silver bars or Platinum bullion, you should do your best to ensure that it’s stored as safely as possible. Your first major decision when it comes to storing your Precious Metals is whether you want to store them yourself or work with a third party.

Personal Storage at Home

One of the most popular options for Precious Metals storage is a safe in your home. A safe offers security and easy access. Safes can be a thief deterrent because they’re often hard to break into and can be heavy depending on the size. There are some issues to consider. Unless your safe is bolted to the wall or floor, there is a chance that someone could remove it from your home. However, if you need constant access to your metals, a safe is probably your best option.

Thieves rarely enter the kitchen, laundry room or child’s room when robbing a home. If you have a small safe and ample space in the back of a cabinet in your kitchen, that might be one of the safest places in your home to store your investments. The last place you want to store your safe is the master bedroom because it’s the first place people of ill intent will look for valuables. There are also many inexpensive, ingenious items on the market to hide or disguise your valuables.

Safety Deposit Boxes

If you want to store your Precious Metals with a third party, a safety deposit box is one of the most popular options. Safety deposit boxes are usually offered by banks, which tend to have a high level of security. However, there is an additional cost for this, and access is often limited to bank hours, which could be an issue for you.

Oklahomans can Buy Gold and Silver Coins and Bars without Paying Sales Tax – Legally!

Law Exempts Precious Metals Purchases if they Meet Other Requirement

For Immediate Release                                                                                   

Contact: Andrew Duffle (405)595-2100 X 265

Oklahoma City, OK, May 15, 2012:  Residents of Oklahoma can legally purchase Gold and Silver coins, bars and rounds from Oklahoma precious metal dealers without paying any sales taxes on that purchase.

A recent law was enacted by the Oklahoma legislature that allows residents of Oklahoma to purchase Gold or Silver coins, rounds or bars, in any amount, from an Oklahoma precious metal dealer without paying any state sales tax, with one important provision. In order to comply with this law, the precious metal products must be stored in a non-bank Depository for safekeeping. The bill specifically does not apply to the purchase of gold or silver items used as jewelry or for artistic or ornamental use. House Bill 3166 passed the 2010 Oklahoma Legislature, with bi-partisan support, and was signed by the Governor. The intent of the bill was to help Oklahomans buy precious metals as they do other investments, without any sales taxes being levied on the purchase.

“We were very pleased to see that the Oklahoma Legislature passed this important measure that leveled the playing field for Oklahoma investors. Now investors don’t have to buy their precious metal products from out-of-state dealers, nor are they subjected to paying more than 8% of sales tax on an investment-type asset, “said Michael Haynes, CEO of APMEX, Inc., of Oklahoma City (www.APMEX.com). APMEX is one of the nation’s largest online precious metals dealers. “In order to help Oklahomans comply with this law, APMEX has created a wholly-owned subsidiary called Citadel Global Depository Services, Inc., (www.cgdsi.com) which secures storage services from one of the most trusted names in the storage of valuable assets,” Haynes concluded.

“Citadel was created to help investors safely and securely store their precious metal products in a high security location. Through our exclusive arrangement with one of the oldest names in the transportation and storage of precious metals, we can provide safe, secure and economical storage for all Oklahoma investors, “ said Mike Garofalo, President of Citadel. “Citadel customers have online access to their holdings 24/7 and the value of their holdings is updated daily. In that way you always know what your Gold and Silver products are worth, whether you own a thousand dollars or ten million dollars worth of precious metals, “Garofalo stated.
