Below are the income restrictions for 2017 Roth IRA contributions:
• Roth IRAs are fully available to single filers whose adjusted gross income (AGI) is less than $118,000. No participation is allowed if your AGI is more than $133,000. Thus, the phase-out range, where contributions are limited in gradual steps as income increases, is between $118,000 and $133,000.
• Roth IRAs are fully available to joint filers whose AGI is less than $186,000. There is a phase-out range between $186,000 and $196,000. Married couples cannot contribute to a Roth IRA if their AGI is more than $196,000.
