If taxes are paid, the income claimed on a 1040 form can potentially be contributed to an IRA, traditional or roth.
The criteria is: '
is the income taxable?'
I don't think this is correct. Income from interest, dividends, and capital gains is certainly taxable, but, is not earned income that can be contributed to an IRA.
I don't know about royalty income, but, I suspect it is not earned income in most cases.
