Deadline for IRA contributions is the due date for filing the individual tax return -- it was extended in 2020, when the 1040 deadline was extended to July 15; presumably that same relief automatically applies this year.

See:

https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/filing-and-payment-deadlines-questions-and-answers (re 2020 extension of contribution deadline)

and IRS Publication 590-A, re general due date for IRA contributions  (also see IRC 408(o)(3) => IRC 219(f)(3) -- due date is time for filing of return, not a specific April 15 date)

Agree with Lois.  The extension for the IRA contributions flows with the due date for the return, so the IRS wouldn't need to address the IRA contribution deadline separately. That said, they most likely will address it in some way as we get closer to the original due date.  

Also, see today's posting on the SlottReport

This postponement also automatically postpones to May 17, 2021, the time for reporting and payment of the 10-percent additional tax on amounts includible in gross income from 2020 distributions from IRAs or workplace-based retirement plans.... Because filers of Form 5498 series are Affected Taxpayers, the due date for filing and furnishing the Form 5498 series is postponed to June 30, 2021.&qu ot;  MORE >>
