Note that this overlap means that when there is overlap (i.e. between 1/1 and 4/15 in any given year) you should first contribute for the previous tax year if you haven't already contributed it to the maximum. One exception to that is if you didn't qualify to contribute in the previous year but expect to qualify in the current year.

When you contribute during this time period, be sure to tell your Roth custodian that it is for the previous year. Note that fact on your check.
