I forgot to claim a $4,000 contribution to a Roth IRA account during the 2006 tax season. How do I go about claiming this in the 2007 tax season? (more inside)

Now as far as I understand, claiming a contribution to a Roth IRA on your taxes can only help you (i.e. give you a larger refund). So I shouldn't be in any trouble for forgetting. Is that correct? Can I claim the contribution I made in 2006 in 2007 or do I have to amend my 2006 tax return?
Just want to do my homework before I visit a tax professional, thanks :)
