I started an IRA in 1998 and made the contribution for 1998. I sent a check for 1999 dated after January 1, 1999, just before leaving on a trip and put a note on it saying it was for 1999. Ameritrade cashed the check before 1999 and put down that I over conntributed. They told me I had to fill out a form with the IRS to change it. The IRS said there is
no such form that Ameritrade must make the correction. Ameritrade refuses to make the correction and tells me they didn't make an error.

I'm going to be subject to a six percent fine for this all because Ameritrade is such a lousy broker.

I have put this thing on record via certified, return receipt requested mail to Ameritrade and the IRS. Also, I'm checking for a new broker.

I need suggestions to get Ameritrade to make the correction. All help appreciated. Thanks.
