A Roth IRA will not serve your needs since it is funded with nondeductible money. A traditional IRA is funded with tax deductible money. This is the one I would recommend if you are seeking current tax savings. The limit is $6,000 for you. However, there may be a problem. IRA accounts can only be deductible to the extent of your earned income. The IRS defines earned income as income from work (W-2 or self employed). If you do not have that an IRA will not resolve your tax issue.
If an IRA will not work for you please let me know and we can see if there are any other avenues for you to follow.
