<<I will be making my 1999 contributions to my Keogh sometime this week. Since I haven't finished my tax returns yet, I'm worried about exceeding my contribution level. If that turns out to be the case, can I leave the excess in there and allocate it as part of my 2000 contribution?>>

Why not wait till you have your returns ready since you have to April 15 to make your 1999 contribution? If you decide to make the contribution, leave it liquid until you know the exact amount. If you buy equities or mutual fund, you'll have to sell to transfer the excess to 2000.
