"Self-employment income. If you are self-employed (a sole proprietor or a partner), compensation is the net earnings from your trade or business (provided your personal services are a material income-producing factor), reduced by the deduction for contributions made on your behalf to retirement plans and the deduction allowed for one-half of your self-employment taxes. " from http://www.irs.gov/forms_pubs/pubs/p5900102.htm
A Roth IRA is in a group that should be viewed as different from the Keoghs, SEPs, SIMPLEs, 401ks, 403bs, etc.
