In response to the Hendrys' statement that you can contribute ONLY $2,000 to an IRA in April 2001, that isn't necessarily true.If you wait until the last half of April 2001, AFTER April 15th, it is correct that you can make a contribution only for that current year (2001), so you would be limited to a $2,000 IRA investment before January 2002.However, it's a different rule if you invest in the first half of April 2001, BEFORE April 15th. Then you are permitted to make a $2,000 contribution attributed to the year 2000, IN ADDITION TO $2,000 attributed to the year 2001. So you would be allowed to invest a total of $4,000 before January 2002.One of the few loopholes the IRS allows for us procrastinators!way2gutsy
