I really appreciate your responses. Piz, I followed your link and threaded it so I could follow your discussion with TMFTaxes. You have successfully scared me away from making any Roth contributions until I know what my tax situation is.

Well, I didn't mean to scare you. It does make sense, though, not to contribute anything to any IRA until after the end of the tax year, if there's any chance that your situation could change, in a way that would affect your ability to make IRA contributions, at any time prior to the end of that tax year.

From now on I'll just assume that my situation could change and not make any contributions until the whole year has passed and has been, for tax purposes, cast in stone.
