If I have the standard deduction on my taxes (that is, I don't itemize), can I deduct IRA contributions? If so, would that be for Traditional or Roth IRAs?
Yes, a contribution to a Traditional IRA is an above-the-line deduction assuming you meet the requirements here, so you don't have to itemize to receive it. You only get a deduction for a Traditional IRA; Roth IRAs are after-tax.
