I have a question regarding Roth IRA withdrawals and deposits.
Question: I have contributed $2000/year for 1999 through 2004 for a total of $12000. If I need to get to the $12000 I know I can withdraw the contributions without penalty, but can I put it back after I withdraw it at a later date?

For example I take $12000 out in 2004 but later that year or the next I want to put the $12000 back plus my normal $2000 contribution. Can I do this?

Thanks in Advance for any Help.
