IRA contribution years on deposits

Initial deposits

All initial deposits are coded for the then-current year. For example:

  • Initial deposit for an IRA account processed on 12/15/2017. This is a 2017 contribution.
  • Initial deposit for an IRA account processed on 03/15/2018. This is a 2018 contribution. 


Auto-deposits are coded for the current year of when the auto-deposit was processed. 

One-time deposits: 

From January 1st of each year until the deadline in April, clients can choose which year to contribute one-time deposits. The deadline is often in the 1st or 2nd week of April and will be communicated each year. 

  • One-time deposits, before WiseBanyan's April deadline: Clients have the option on the funding process in the dashboard, iOS, or Android app to chose the tax year for their one-time deposit.
  • One-time deposits, after WiseBanyan's April deadline: All one-time deposits after the deadline are coded for the then-current year.
