I'm not sure if it applies to anyone here, but there is a $1000 tax credit for saving using an IRA. You have to meet some requirements though:

-- Born before Jan 1988
-- Not a full-time student
-- No one else claims you on their taxes
-- Adjusted gross is less than: $50k married filing joint, $37,500 head of household, $25k single or married filing separately

I'm military so a large potion of my income isn't taxed so it makes it easier to get to these income levels, but just a hint for everyone out there. If you need more info you can go to IRS Pub 590, chapter 5
