Crosenfield said, in part:if you were covered under a pension plan (for even one day of 1999) and earned a middle class income, you can't deduct your contribution.I'm assuming that by middle class income, you mean over $42,000 for single filers, and $62,000 for joint filers, since for 2000, if you are covered by a retirement plan, your IRA deduction will not be reduced unless your modified AGI is between $32,000 and $42,000 for a single individual, or head of household, or $52,000 and $62,000 for a married couple filing a joint return.I'm just trying to clarify the above quote, since I had to read it twice initially. The question of a deductable contribution is based on qualifying circumstances relating to filing status, retirement plan coverage and adjusted gross income.If I've only made this discussion worse, check out IRS Publication 590 as the IRA source, as well as the Fool's IRA area: http://www.fool.com/money/allaboutiras/allaboutiras.htm?ref=G02C05Not trying to step on any toes here, Doc.BmF
