One of us is covered by a retirement plan at work so we should fall into the MAGI under $218,000 for tranditional IRA contributions.

Hello,

 

We would like to contribute $7,500 each (MFJ) into a traditional IRA before 4-15-24.  That section in turbo tax indicates that our MAGI is over $136,000 so we don't qualify.  But, only one of us is covered by a retirement plan so it seems we should fall into the $218,000 or less category.  Also, can we contribute between 1-1-24 and 4-15-24 or did it need to be regular contributions to qualify?  Thank you for the help!

The person who is NOT coved by an employer retirement plan can deduct their Traditional IRA if the AGI is under $218,000.

 

However, the person who IS covered by an employer retirement plan is subject to the lower income limit.   They can still contribute to a Traditional IRA, but it would not be deductible (although I generally don't recommend making non-deductible Traditional IRA contributions).
