    If you were covered by a retirement plan at work, then you can take a full deduction for a Traditional IRA if your modified AGI is:

    $52,000 or less (single)
    $83,000 or less (married jointly)

    Phaseout provisions occur over these thresholds.

    You need to do the worksheets in publication 590.

    The fact that you were covered by the 401K in the rest of the year (whether you contributed or not) affects your ability to deduct for an IRA even if you weren’t covered for the first part of the year.
