It will be 7/15 per the tax code since the IRA contribution deadline is the due date for filing the prior year return. However, it is possible that your custodian’s processing platform will not have been updated to accept contributions after 4/15 shortly after 4/15, so it’s a good idea to check with the custodian closer to 4/15.

And those same systems may automatically flag any contributions after 4/15 as 2020 contributions, so be very careful flag all contributions made after 4/15 to be 2019 contributions, then verify that your account shows a 2019 contribution.
