Thank you for your question, and thanks for using JustAnswer.com. Unfortunately, Joe - if your wife was covered by a retirement plan at work for even 1 day during the year your deduction
to your IRA would be limited. The income limitation for married filing joint is between $92,000 and $112,000. Your income is over that limit, therefore you would not be able to have a deduction.
I'm truly sorry if this is not what you had hoped to hear. Had there been better news to report, I would have been thrilled to do so. Please don't shoot the messenger. Thanks again for using JustAnswer.com and ahve a great day.
