I hope y'all will forgive this newbie for leaping in feet-first, but I have a sort of knotty problem-- I'm and American citizen living and working in the Czech Republic, so I qualify for the overseas income tax exemption. I want to open a Roth IRA, but as I understand it, the Roth is funded with after-tax income. Considering I don't pay taxes, will this be a problem? I've called several online brokerages (Schwab, T. Rowe Price, Vanguard) but none of them could give me an answer. Help!

thanks,

La Lima
