I was wondering if anyone out there is familiar with the rules governing IRAs for people living abroad. I am a self-employed contractor living in Germany and I am not certain if I can continue to contribute to my SEP-IRA (I would also like open a ROTH-IRA, but that's another post...) if I use the 70K exclusion allowance.

Running a search of "IRA Exclusion Foreign" I found a number of posts that might interest you. The second in the list is number 25047 from 1/14/00 and was written by TMFTaxes. You can get there by clicking on:

Best of luck.
