Thanks for the info!!
I had not read through Pub 590. I have seen numerous instances (my wife included) where there was no active participation in teh plan whether it be employee money or employer money and the box on the w-2 was checked as being covered by a qualified plan. Since the W-2 is reported to the IRS the assumption was the payroll company or whoever prepared the W-2 was following the IRS regs. Thanks for the clarifying for me. This is the best part of the Fool!!
I'll read the referenced pages of Pub 590 in more detail

Thanks Joel.
