I have read too many contradicting things about a spousal IRA.

My spouse does not work. Can I contribute to a Roth IRA for my spouse? What is the income cut off for the contribution? I have read in some places that it is 60K for a spousal IRA. Is this true or is it the same as for a regular IRA.>>

Then you might try reading the right material. See page 6 of IRS Publication 590 (Individual Retirement Arrangements) available at . As long as you file a joint return and you have the earned income to support the contribution, then you may contribute up to $2K per year to your spouse's traditional or Roth IRA even if that spouse has no income.
