I'm starting a Roth IRA through TheFinancialCafe.com. I can put in the full $2k right now. Someone told me that I can open one before April 15 and have it count for the year 2000. Is that the case?

Thank you for the opportunity to climb on my "Learn before You Act" soapbox. IMO, the fact that you didn't know this means you're not yet ready to have an IRA. I'm not saying you shouldn't have one, but rather that you need to learn the basics before you open one.

Please take the time to go through All About IRAs: http://www.fool.com/money/allaboutiras/allaboutiras.htm. It will be time well spent.
