Unless you have a 8880 (Savers credit) and claimed the credit, as part of the return, then it does not matter.

A Roth IRA contribution does not actually go on a tax return, but you should enter it anyway to:

   1) Tell you if your income qualifies you for a contribution and warn you if it does not.
   2) Check if your income exceeds the limit to contribute to a Roth.
   3) Track your contribution year-to-year if you use TurboTax every year.
   4) Add the Retirement Savers Credit if you qualify.
