2011 Roth IRA
« on: April 16, 2012, 10:06:18 AM »
I'm thinking about opening a Roth IRA and funding it for 2011 sometime today or tomorrow to meet the IRS deadline.  I filed my taxes months ago for 2011.  When you open / fund a Roth IRA do you have to file a special form on your taxes?  Trying to determine if I would need to file an amended tax return on top of opening the Roth for 2011.

The Roth is all after tax money, so it should have no impact on your filed taxes.

But on the other hand you might be able to use the "saver's credit" if you didn't already...
