Let me apologize in advance if this question has been answered before. I read the entire "All About IRA's" pages and did a quick scan a few pages back on this board. Unfortunately, I can't think of a search criteria that would limit the hits to less than 10,000 or so. So here goes:I still am not certain what I can and cannot do without suffering the wrath of the IRS. I work and contribute the maximum allowable to my company's 401-k. My spouse does not work. We file jointly and our AGI is below the $150,000 Roth IRA limit.I THINK that this is what I can do with respect to ROTH/Deductible IRAs:I canNOT contribute deductible money to a "regular" IRA.ANDI CAN contribute up to $2000 to a ROTH IRA.ANDMy spouse CAN contribute up to $2000 to EITHER a Roth or deductible IRA, but not both. If it is contributed to a traditional IRA, it is deductible now. All of this is per year of course. I am uncertain about 2 items: First, can I contribute to the Roth and my non-working spouse still contribute $2000? Second, can my non-working spouse contribute to a Roth if she has no earned income? I know a spouse without income can contribute to a regular IRA, but I couldn't figure out if they could do the same to a Roth.Thanks for your patience.
