IRAs don't work the same as some other things, i.e., the postmark doesn't count . . . .

I reply:

Actually, I recall reading in this folder last spring that the postmark does count; in other words, that the IRS considers a contribution to be timely if it is mailed by Tax Day. Custodians, on the other hand, may have a more conservative view. --Bob
