Well, I have looked at IRS pub 590 and got crosseyed before getting through the 100 pages. Browsed back on the posts here but did not see htis topic, thought some of you could answer it easier than I could sift it out.My wife and I have both been contributing to our Roth IRAs for a few years. Now my wife is staying at home with the kids, and does not have an earned income. I'd still like to contribute to her IRA. The rules state you must have an earned income.But I read somewhere about the spousal IRA and it appears this provision allows me to contirbute for her as long as we file jointly.Does this mean I would have to open a new account, or would I just keep contributing to her existing Roth? Additional paperwork invovled with this, or can I just start contributing?Dozer
