Determining IRA partial deduction
« on: February 18, 2014, 01:53:13 PM »
My adjusted income for 2013 is about $64,000 which falls into the partial deduction category of 59K-69K.  I have not find details on how to determine what my partial deduction would be?  How do I figure how much of the $5,500 IRA limit I can deduct?

I assume whatever remaining balance from the IRA can then used for the Roth?

Undecided

Have you looked in the instructions to the return? There is an IRA deduction worksheet.

No...I haven't seen an IRS form for over a decade.  I use turbo tax and each of those years, I've always been eligible for the full deduction. Maybe TT has a section which also helps with partial deductions? Thanks for your reply though, I googled IRA deduction worksheet and found the pdf.

So it turns out if I should have googled "IRA deduction calculator" rather than "how to determine partial IRA deduction."  Fidelity offers a very nice calculator.
