The IRS says, though, that you may recharacterize that contribution as one made to a nondeductible traditional IRA prior to April 15 (or 17 for next year), and all will be well with the world.

IIRC, the deadline for recharacterizing is Income Tax Day (i.e. April 15/17), even if you file for an extension. Is that correct, or is my memory playing tricks on me?
