I am married filing jointly.
I know I can put 2k/year into my Roth and my non-working spouse can put 2k of the couples income into her Roth.

Now this year my spouse started selling toys on the side for extra spending money. Her profits from that will be between 1 and 2k.

My question is can we still contribute 2k into her Roth this year since she is no longer a "non-working spouse", and may make less than the ~$2700 needed to contribute $2k to a Roth IRA????
Thanks for any response.
