The November (House) version of technical corrections eliminates the IRA contribution deduction from the calculation of modified adjusted gross income for purposes of the Roth IRA provisions. As far as I know, the Senate version will be consistent with the House on this point. As a result, contributions to a 401k or Keogh will keep modified AGI down, but apparently contributions to a deductible IRA will not.KAT in Chicagolandhttp://www.fairmark.comTax Guide for InvestorsIncludes the latest information onRoth IRA technical corrections
