I plan on contributing the maximum 4000 to a roth IRA for 2007 before April 15th this year. Currently using turbo tax to do my 1040 and it says to enter the amount you have contributed to a roth in 2007 OR the amount you expect to contribute by April 15th. Can I put 4000 in and file my 1040 even though I have not done it yet? Or do I have to wait to file my return until I reach the 4000 earmarked for 2007?
