If you have earned income, you should be able to make a $2K contribution to a Roth IRA--regardless of any other plans you participate in.

Nothing can be done about taxes on that $8K, but you could put $2K into a tax deductible IRA next year to reduce the bite somewhat. By working in January you have earned income in 2001, and should be eligible.
