It looks like our 1999 married filing jointly AGI will put us in the phase-out range for Education and Roth IRA's. Because of this, I did not make any 1999 contributions before year-end because I did not want to risk exceeding the contribution limits.

A recent Fool article on Roth IRAs states that contributions for the prior year may be made up until the tax due date (i.e., 1999 contributions can be made through the 1999 tax due date in April 2000). Does this same rule apply to Education IRAs? If so, where is this stated in the regs?

Thanks to all advance for your input.
