lslim: "My AGI will fall within the phase out range this year. Is it better to take an estimated guess and contribute partially to a Roth IRA and the remainder to a traditional IRA and adjust in Jan '00 (before the April
15th deadline)? Or, would you recommend skipping the administrative hassle and contributing all to a traditional IRA?"


I like the Roth IRA, so I would wait until AGI was calcualted next spring, and then make the maximum Roth contribution and use the balance ($2,000 - Roth contribution) for a regular IRA.

Just my $0.02. Regards, JAFO
