The rep I talked to at Vanguard said I could contribute $10000 to my SIMPLE and $5000 to my employer's, up to the total defered limit of $15000. Was he wrong on this? Anyway, that is how I arrived at the numbers I did:

My simple: 10k
Employer's SIMPLE: 5k
Regular Roth IRA: 4k
Total: 19k

While one should never rely on a mutual fund customer service rep for tax advice, this one was correct. The reason I questioned the $19,000 figure was that I didn't realize you were including a Roth contribution in that number.
