I have a simple Roth IRA question, which someone can probably answer in a few words. When I began asking my discount broker about Roth IRAs, she actually told me that you can contribute pre-tax earnings, which I know to be false for Roths. I subsequently stopped asking her questions :).
My question is this: When you file a tax return (standard 1040), do you indicate on it somewhere what your Roth IRA contribution for the given year was?
I am inclined to guess that you do, which explains why you can still make a contribution for year X up until April 15th of the year X+1.
