Last Day to make a 2017 IRA contribution –
If you haven’t already funded your retirement account for 2017, do so by April 17. That’s the deadline for a contribution to a traditional IRA, deductible or not, and a Roth IRA. However, if you have a Keogh or SEP and you get a filing extension to October 15, you can wait until then to put 2017 money into those accounts.
