Next year my wife and I may surpass the income limit for Roth contributions. Because of the type of investing I do, I much prefer funding IRA's than using my non-matching employer's 403(b).

I could not find it in the FAQ. What, if any, income limits are there for making non-deductible contributions to a traditional IRA? Is it still a limit of $2000/year per person? I am also considering this as an alternative to a UTMA account with twins due in January - an alternative for college and (maybe) help for a first time home purchase for them. I have a large UTMA for my 3-year old daughter and have concerns about my kids having access to such a potentially large account when they turn 18.

Thanks in advance,
Buckaroo
