Do you have to make your ira contribution before filing of return? or can you file return now and make ira contribution before due date?

I believe it’s by due date but always require my clients to make the contributions before i efile just to be sure it was done. Prefer not to have to file 1040x if they forget or can’t 

If at first you don’t succeed…..find a workaround

Its by the due date.  I have clients that we file the return early and they use the refund to make the IRA contribution.
