We both do not have such account in the past, but wonder if there will be a problem mixing deductable tradictional IRA with non-deductable traditional IRA in the future?

I reply:

No problem at all. You can make deductible and non-deductible contributions into the same traditional IRA account. Just remember to report your basis when you fill out your taxes, so that when you eventually start withdrawing the money, you're not taxed a second time on your non-deductible contributions. --Bob
