Making IRA contribution for the previous year

If I want to make an IRA contribution before April 15th for the previous tax year, what do I need to do? How can I make a deposit to the IRA account?

Roth IRA Deposit forms and the Traditional IRA Deposit forms are available. Simply complete the form, then print and sign. Please indicate the tax year that is applicable. IRA deposits received through the mail must be postmarked on or before the tax deadline to be applied to the previous year.

The due date for filing 2019 Federal income tax returns has been extended to July 15, 2020. The deadline to make contributions to your IRA for 2019 is also extended to July 15, 2020. State deadlines require individual state approval. Members should verify if their state filing deadline has also been extended. Please contact the IRA Department at 404-677-4600 if you have any questions.

IRA contributions may also be made online for the current year or previous year (before the tax deadline date) through your Online Banking record. Simply transfer from your accounts to the IRA using the Transfer tab within Online Banking. Online contributions for the previous year are only available until the tax deadline. Previous year contributions are not available if transferring between memberships.
