Subject:  Roth possible with foreigned earned income? Date:  2/19/2001  9:18 PM
Author:  umma2three Number:  46776 of 127745

My husband and I both work overseas. We are exempted from federal taxes uder the "Foreigned Earned Income" does this disqualify us from opening a Roth IRA?

If our status disqualifies us, I've heard there may be a way to pay some taxes in order to qualify for a Roth.

We would really like to start a Roth, and would like a way in which we could do this.

Any help would be appreciated.
