[[If I was to put my max. amount of money ($2,000) into a Roth this year in December and $2,000 in January would this be exceptible?]]It would even be acceptable!!! No problem there. The December contribution would (I assume) be your 1998 contribution, and the January contribution would be your 1999 contribution. So you would have made the max contribution in each of the two years.[[ If so then I could not contribute any more money into 2000... Right....]]Righto. Your January contribution would cover tax year 1999. The earliest that you could fund an additional $2,000 contribution would be January 1, 2000 (assuming that we are all alive and the financial markets don't crumble on the first day of year 2000).Hope this helps...TMF TaxesRoySPECIAL NOTE: Remember that this response is not the "last word" on your situation.
