Just curious, but could you withdraw it all, then re-contribute?

Suppose a $2,000 contribution has fallen 50% to $1,000, and you find you were only eligible to contribute $1,000. Withdrawing the $1,000 excess, adjusted for the 50% loss, would leave $500 in the account. Is there a way to reverse the entire contribution and send in another $1,000 for 2001 before April 15th?


PMcMullenCT:

This is an interesting question, but I think the risk is too high to try it. Thanks for the suggestion, though.
