Hello,

I'm aware that IRA contributions can be made for tax-year 2000 up through April 16 of this year. My question: is it still possible to make contributions if you've already filed for 2000? The IRA account is presently a regular one, but we'd like to convert to a Roth asap.

If we convert in the next month, then we pay the tax involved when we file for 2001, right? But what if we convert say on March 15, then are we able to still make additional contributions for 2000?

I'm new to IRAs (and investing!) and am actually unable to start my own IRA because I work abroad and claim exemption for my foreign earned income. So it's all a bit unclear to me. I am trying to sort out these issues together with my fiancé, about whose IRA I am writing.

Thanks for any feedback ...
