DW has a Roth IRA. We received a letter stating we could make contributions for 2003 until April 15, 2004. We would like to put some more money in her Roth (since it wasn't fully funded for '03), however I was starting our taxes today and TurboTax asks how much you have contributed to a Roth IRA for the year.

We would like to file our taxes now (will be getting a refund); however don't want to have to file an amended return after contributing more to the Roth for 2003. I have looked at our 1040A for 2001 & 2002- it doesn't ask how much you contributed to a Roth. Why is TurboTax asking for this and DO we have to file an amended return if addt'l contributions are made to the Roth?

Thanks in advance.
