Making Cents: Changing Your IRA

June 02, 1996

If you quickly threw some money into a mutual fund to make sure you had an IRA deduction by April 15, review your decision now. You might prefer another fund in the same family--usually it's a simple switch. Or you could transfer funds elsewhere, although that requires some paperwork. And if you have the money, why not make the 1997 contribution now. You start earning tax-deferredreturns sooner.

For the Record

IRA contributions--A "Making Cents" item on June 2 suggested making a "1997 IRA contribution" now. The idea was to make the deposit for this tax year now, instead of in early 1997. IRA contributions for a particular year can be made any time between Jan. 1 of that year and April 15 of the next year.
