The way I understand (and I'm sure I'll be corrected if I'm wrong)it is that if you participated in a defined contribution plan or a defined benefit plan anytime during a tax year you are not eligible to participate in a traditional IRA (deductible), but you may participate in a Roth IRA (non-deductible). A SEP-IRA (IRA contributions of a business on behalf of employees) is only available to self-employeds who are not covered by any other retirement plan because it is a deductible IRA.
