First Pixy, thanks for the answer to a question I ask previously. I am covered by a pension plan in my job and make over the $50-60K limit for deductable IRA's. My wife is currently unemployed thus has no wages for contributing to an IRA based on her own earnings. If for the remainder of 1998 she does not work, can she contribute to a deductable IRA? I know she can contribute up to $2k to a Roth or a nondeductable IRA, however I'm not sure about whether a deductable IRA is possible.
