I have new information, so I'm making sure I'm contributing effectively.

a) My modified AGI looks to be less than $169k.
b) I am covered by a 401k at work, I've maxed out.
c) My wife worked only a small part time job, less than $1k, and is not covered by a retirement plan.

So, I think I should do the following -
a) Contribute $6k to my Roth IRA, and
b) Contribute $6k to my wife's Traditional IRA, which is tax deductible.

Look right?
