I will make over 100,000 USD in 2001. I don't know the exact number yet, as it depends on commissions which haven't been finalized. It will likely be around 110,000 USD.

I have been contributing to a Roth IRA in the past, but it looks like I won't be able to contribute 2000 USD this year due to my salary.

Should I just open a traditional IRA and invest all my 2000 USD there, or should I split my contribution into both my Roth and a new IRA? Can you recommend some easy to read literature on how I calculate how much I can contribute to the Roth?

Also to make things even more difficult, I am living abroad and I just got married to a non-US citizen. How will this effect my IRA contribution? Can I now invest 4000 USD if we file joint taxes?

Any help anyone can give would be much appreciated!
