Hi Bill

TA was calculating for the SEP first, and the place I was having trouble with was on the regular IRA, where it said I would not be able to deduct the full $6K for my age because I would exceed the allowable. I began again, and very carefully entered stuff from scratch, and then it all worked out right. My only guess is that I had messed up somewhere in another of the forms, by either entering the wrong amount, or putting it in the wrong place. Which is basically telling everyone that I can be just plain stupid.

Huge thanks to Phil, you, and everyone else who replied to me giving me advice. I do appreciate your efforts immensely. Thank you!
