Q

What’s the 2018 IRA contribution deadline?

A

April 17, 2018.

Traditional IRA as well as Roth IRA contributions must be made by the official April tax deadline of any given year. Since April 15 falls on a weekend in 2018, the due date for taxes and IRA contributions is April 17, 2018. SEP-IRA contributions are due before an individual files his or her tax returns, so either April 17, 2018, or October 15 if the taxpayer has filed for a six-month extension.
