I set up my Roth IRA this February and contributed my max $2000. Can I contribute my next $2000 after April 15th or do I have to wait until January 1, 2001?

Not Phil here, but let's see how I do. Dates for a Roth contribution are, for year 2000: January 1, 2000 until April 15, 2001. Just write on the check that it's your 2000 Roth contribution, and make sure that the place where you set your Roth up at noted that the contribution in February was for 1999. Now if the February contribution was your 2000 one, then yes, you have to wait until January 1, 2001.
