I plan on fully funding a Traditional IRA for my wife and myself for the 2002 tax year. Both of these will be fully deductible as I do not have any employer plan and my wife does not work.

My question is, do these IRAs need to be funded before I file my taxes or can I file at any time as long as the IRAs are funded prior to April 15th?

Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

You can fund the IRA any time up to April 15, even if you have already filed. In case you're thinking of filing "with" the IRA and then not funding it, remember that the IRS will get a report from your IRA trustee documenting IRA contributions. It will take some time, but they will be matched to the tax return.
