<< First off, I was very foolish (That's lower case f!!!)last year. Due to my financial situation, I was unable to take part in my employers 401k plan. I never enrolled, nor did I put any money into it. My situation has changed, and I would like to make a contribution to a deductible IRA, for 1999. On line 15 of my W-2, my employer marked the "pension plan" box. Does this exclude me from making a tax-deductible IRA contribution? >>No, but it does make you subject to the AGI test for deductibility. See the instructions for line 23 of Form 1040.<< And what constitutes an active participant in an employee sponsored pension plan? >>I'm sure someone will be along to correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that if you CAN contribute to a 401(k) you're covered, whether or not you actually contribute.Phil MartiTax Preparer
