I know this question just came up, but I didn't see the answer and now I can't find the post :-/

A simple scenario- I put $2000 into my Roth IRA in January but in July have a need for some of that money and take out $1500. Is it possibly to repay that $1500 back before the end of the year and still fall under the $2000 contribution/year rule? Or would that be considered overpayment? I know I have the right to withdraw any of my own contributions, but once it's out, does it have to stay out?
