<<my wife and I make 80K/yr. She was not eligible for
401 K contribution with her company last year(1997)
I contributed to 401K.
Is there any way she make a TAx deductible IRA contribution for 1997?>>
Roy's response was correct, of course. I would add that you may find that a nondeductible contribution to a Roth IRA is just as good as, or better than, a deductible contribution to a regular IRA. And it would certainly be better than a nondeductible contribution to a regular IRA.
