If a person receives an IRA distribution of $1079 (due to a rollover)

These terms are mutually exclusive. If a distribution was rolled over, it's not treated as a taxable distribution. What exactly happened?

in the same year that he makes an IRA contribution of $1925 from his earned income, do these two events have any effect on each other?


Can he still deduct the full $1925?

The disribution, whether taxable or non, doesn't in itself affect the deductibility of a traditional IRA contribution.

Are the taxes on his distribution different than they would have been without the contribution?
