I filed the 4 month extension for my 97 tax return and am getting ready to send my check.

I do not have an IRA now and would like to set one up and make a $2000 contribution (for 97)to save a few tax dollars.

I have been told that I can do this even at this late date so long as I have not yet filed and so long as my filing extension is honored by IRS.

Anyone know if this is legal? Thanks for your help.

Sorry, the deadline is your return due date WITHOUT regard to extensions. In other words, April 15, even if you have a valid extension to August 15.
