You will not get any tax savings if you contribute to a ROTH IRA this year-you get the tax savings when you take distributions after you retire.  If you are able to contribute to a traditional IRA, you will get a income deduction in 2016 which may reduce your taxable income

ROTH IRA contributions are not deductible and provide no current tax savings. Only deductible contributions to a Traditional IRA provide any current tax benefit.
