<< When you're checking to see if your AGI is below the $95K and/or $110K limit for making a Roth IRA contribution:What line is that on the 1040 form, line 33? >>New to taxes, are you? Did you really think it would be that easy?To determine if you're eligible for a Roth contribution, you must compute your Modified AGI, or MAGI, no doubt after the wise men in Congress who brought it to you. Calculate Roth contribution MAGI as follows:AGI (line 33 of the 1040) MINUSany income on line 15b that comes from a conversion of a traditional IRA to a Roth IRAPLUS- traditional IRA deduction (line 23)- student loan interest deduction (line 24)- Foreign earned income exclusion- foreign housing exclusion or deduction- exclusion of qualified bond interest shown on Form 8815, and- exclusion of employer-paid adoption expenses shown on Form 8839. MAGI is a concept that turns up frequently, but don't bother memorizing this version. It tends to change from provision to provision. Part of simplification, I guess.Phil MartiTax Preparer
