OK I Hope someone can help me with this

I make $64000 per year, hubby makes $105000 per year, we are contributing (heavily) to 401K's but our accountant says we do not qualify to do an IRA as well (I know we don't get the tax deduction and a roth is just a dream) BUT?? can we each contribute the $2000 apiece to invest and grow.
We file separately on income taxes if that helps
(we just moved to the US 2 years ago from Canada and are still trying to figure out the tax system)
thanks

Why file separately? Try your taxes both ways and see if married isn't better.

If you filed a joint return and were US citizens you could each make a 2,000 non deductible IRA contribution. Best ask this question on the tax board.
