This was the last response to my secure messages to my Vanguard representative:

“I spent some time calling some of our experts in the area of retirement
issues. They have come back with the guidance that you can, in fact, make
a contribution up to July 15, 2020 into your IRA. In speaking with our
systems group, Vanguard cannot guarantee that will be able to
be updated by April 15th deadline; however, we have contingency processes
in place to be able to process these prior-year contributions up to the
July 15th deadline and align the tax reporting accordingly.

Thank you for reaching out on this issue. I appreciate your understanding
as we continue to analyze the changes being made and pivot to address the
associates changes.
