Crosenfield: "When you take money out of your IRA at retirement time, if it is a Roth it won't be taxed, if traditional will be taxed as ordinary income no matter what was the source of the money."

I dislike disagreeing with Chris, but a traditional IRA can have basis, in which case only a portion of the withdrawal may be taxable.
