Hi all,I have a question that, on the surface, might sound a little shady. So just let me say up front that I'm an honest guy and ultimately, I'll do the right thing! On to my question:I've set up a Roth IRA for both my wife and for myself. Typically, our incomes fall within the AGI to qualify for a Roth IRA. However, this year, I liquidated some stock to purchase our first home. Doing so pushed my AGI over the Roth IRA limit. Prior to all this, I had already made my Year 2000 contribution to my Roth.So my "shady" question is this: Who's gonna know? The IRS knows nothing of my Roth IRA. My online broker knows nothing about my AGI. I don't turn 59.5 (and therefore won't dip into my IRA) for another 30 years. So why not play dumb and blow it off?I'm certain there's a reason, otherwise everybody and their brother would have a Roth, regardless of their AGI.Just curious...Thanks in advance for your responses.Regards,FortWayneFool
