You may want to make sure you open your Roth accounts before April 15.That way,you can open them for 1999,and if you wish you can do it for year 2000 too,a total of up to $4000 for you and $4000 for your husband.If you open them for 1999,it counts as if you opened them on Jan.1,1999,which gives you a one year head start on certain tax advantaged withdrawals that you become eligible for after the account is open for five years.
