Here is a potentially silly question from a newbie. I have an account with BCL brokerage and have applied for a Roth account. Now that the account is approved and I can send some money.....


-------
-------
Can I send one check for 4k to be applied for 1999 contributions and Y2K contributions as long as the check is received after the first of the year? I, of course, haven't contributed for the year 1999 yet.

How do I designate to the brokerage (more importantly, Uncle Sam) that I am not trying to double up on my contributions- just trying to fill them up?

After filling out the "Buy" order in a Roth account, is there a place to designate which year the buy is for?

Will the brokerage even let me put 4k into a Roth IRA account?? Or can I have as much in as I want as long as I only buy 2k worth of stock.

Please help. Time is closing in and I am feeling a little desperate for information during the holiday season.

Thank you.
