Subject: Starting a Roth IRA... Date: 1/19/2000 11:24 PM

I have had a traditional IRA through a "full service" broker for several years; last year I received a notice from the IRS that my contribution for the previous year was not tax deductable because I made too much....the full service broker never explained any of the rules to me. Reading the IRA related materials on fool.com has been instructive and enlightening....I'm ready to get foolish!!!!

I can't afford the tax liability if I were to convert my traditional IRA to Roth, so I want to open a Roth IRA (my income will permit $2000 per year contributions to a Roth), but my question is this: If I open the Roth IRA before April 15th, can I fund it with $4000 ($2000 for 1999 and $2000 for 2000)???

Thanks in advance for any input.
