<<My question is: Can I convey my $2,000 contribution to the IRA in the form of already-owned stock? Would it be considered a sale (complete with capital gains) and a subsequent purchase or would my basis in the stock be the purchase price I paid before I set up the IRA?>>Nope. Sorry. Can't. IRA contributions are required to be made in cash only. It simply wouldn't be allowed...regardless of if you deemed it a sale or not. TMF TaxesRoy
