It's never a good idea to try to game the system.

Interesting. What about putting money into a non-deductible Traditional IRA then immediately converting into a Roth IRA to get around max income Roth IRA limits.

Would you consider that gaming the system, or tax avoidance strategy, or?

And of course it wouldn't be theft. It would be with my sister's blessing.
