Can I contribute to both a traditional IRA and a Roth IRA in the same year?

Contributions may be made to both IRAs each year as long as total contributions into both don't exceed the single maximum contribution limit specified by the IRS. The ability to contribute to a Roth IRA is also subject to income limits, and the deductibility of traditional IRAs is subject to income limits for "active participants".
