Why cant i deduct an IRA contribution?

Why cant i deduct an IRA contribution? I don't have a 401K at work, but my wife does. Our MAGI is over $121,000. Its my IRA. Is it because she has a retirement plan and work that is preventing the deduction?

Yes, you can't deduct the IRA contribution since your wife was covered by a retirement plan at work and your MAGI is over $199,000. 

Please see 2018 IRA Contribution and Deduction Limits for detailed information.
