investor, DOB 7/2/1945, made a traditional IRA contribution in 2016 for the 2015 tax year
custodian rejected contribution - saying they were ineligible due to age -
I am of the feeling the individual would be eligible to fund a traditional IRA for the 2015 tax year - 7/2/2015 was their 70th bithday - they didnt attain age 70.5 until 1/2/2016. It seems the custodian reject the contribution in error.
Any guidance is appreciated.
