The deadline for making your IRA contribution for 2016 is also April 15, 2017. Even if you filed for an extension to file your taxes, that does not extend your IRA contribution deadline. The IRA deadline is your un-extended tax filing deadline.

You are most welcome.
A positive 5 star rating is appreciated so I am credited for assisting.
