Hello all,This is my first post, and while I did look several places on this site (and a few others) for the solution, I must admit that I did not check everywhere.Anyway, I am a college student in my early twenties and I have had a Roth IRA for a couple of years. I usually contribute $2000 from savings at the beginning of the year and then earn at least that much through one or more part-time jobs. However, this year I transferred schools at the end of the spring semester and didn't work much during the summer or fall. During the rush to adjust to a new campus, I must admit that I sort of forgot about the IRA.Now it is days to the end of the year, and I realize that I am at least $1000 short of my goal. I am not currently in a position to earn what I need before January 1st. Is it possible to just pay taxes on the difference and leave it in the account? If not, can I somehow have the difference credited to the next tax year?I realize I need to contact the IRA manager and have it taken care of. However, I would like to know my options before I make that call. Thanks in advance for any advice anyone can provide!Regards,n7049
