Greetings, mdbfool, and welcome. You asked:<<I know that I can not contribute to both a Roth and a Traditional IRA in the same year. My question is whether I could roll over my 401k into a traditional IRA, each year and not worry about the tax deduction, and still make my $2000 annual roth contributions? IRS Pub 590 seems to read that a rollover from a qualified retirement plan to a traditional ira is not considered a contribution.>>Actually, you may indeed contribute to both a Roth and a traditional IRA in the same year. You just can't contribute more than a combined total $2K in the same year. Otherwise, you may split that $2K between a Roth and a traditional IRA any way you please.As to rolling your 401k money into a traditional IRA each year, that's more of a problem. The majority of plans won't let you transfer money out of the 401k until you leave that job. Some, though, do have in-service withdrawals of part (not all) of the money based on your age and years of participation in the plan. Such withdrawals are up to the plan. You must check with your plan administrator to see if yours is one that does allow such transfers.Regards..Pixy
