Thanks jrr7. FWIW, people on other TMF message boards disagree with our line of thinking, which I suppose is why I posted here instead. You and Pixy have confirmed my thinking, so we will pay into the IRA for 2001.

Also, FYI, once we fund the IRAs for 2001, we intend to pay off the remaining CC debt AND pay the $6000 into our IRAs for 2002, plus continue to max my 401k. It's a tall order, but we paid $18000 in CC last year while maxing my 401k, so I know we can do it. Thanks again for the post.
