Recharacterize non-deductible 2017 tIRA contributions now?
« on: November 21, 2017, 10:04:33 AM »
We're in the phase-out range for being able to fully deduct contributions to my IRA (married filing jointly; I max out my 401K, my husband is the at-home parent and his IRA contribution  is fully deductible).  In the past I re-characterized after I did our taxes so I had the exact amount that was not tax deductible. Given that this option might not be available under the proposed tax plan, am I better off estimating this amount and doing so now?

Thanks in advance.
