I was looking for a gift to give to a x-girls freind son.
I all way gave him things that would fall by the waste side.
Now that i am not around him so much i do not know things to get him.
still wanting to get things for his b-day and x-mas, i am turning to the school ira.
One thing i was thinking not only does this help him to save for school. The gift can be a write off for me. (is my thinking right?)

Anthor plus is the cap of the Ira is going for $500- To $2500.
So others who want can put in to the Ira also If they know about it.

If this is the son of a former girlfriend (and who is not your son), this is a very generous gift. Your last thought, however, is incorrect. You do not get to write off (deduct) gifts to friends.

I was sure I'd win the Powerball drawing.

No, Ed IRA contributions are not deductible. You can verify this in IRS Publication 590, which you can download from www.irs.gov.

I should have realized that someone had probably answered already and checked all the posts more carefully.

Thanks Phil!
