IRA Contribution Deadline

By

Definition: Typically April 15 of the year following the year to which the contribution relates, the absolute cut-off date for an IRA contribution is the due date for the tax return. For example, to make an IRA contribution for 2010, an individual must make their contribution by April 18, 2011. (April 15 is a holiday in Washington, D.C., and April 16 and April 17 are holidays, so the 18th becomes the deadline.)
