Can I claim a deduction for a traditional IRA contribution?
The issue is whether I was covered by a pension plan at work or not. In 2018, I retired on 8/31. Up to that point, I was covered at work. Started drawing pension from that job 9/1. Also started drawing pension from the USAF. If I check I was covered, Turbo Tax says I cannot take a deduction for the ($6500 me and $6500 spouse) IRA contribution. If I check the box that says I wasn't covered, TurboTax says I can.
