Yes, but check your account statements to be sure Scottrade has recorded the year correctly. Usually they will show it as a contribution for the year in which it was received. However, the law allows you to make your 2003 contribution until April 15 (tax day) of '04. So if you make the '03 contribution in '04, you need to be sure Scottrade records the year correctly.

If the contribution gets recorded incorrectly, getting it corrected is usually not a big deal. Letter, e-mail or phone call will usually do it. But just make sure the final entry is correct.
