Greetings, Bob, and welcome. You asked:

<<"Annual contributions to a Roth IRA are limited to $2,000 minus the taxpayer's traditional IRA contributions."

I currently have a SEP-IRA, to which more than $2,000 is being contributed, yearly. Does that, together with the above quote, mean that I wouldn't be able to contribute to a Roth IRA?>>

A SEP-IRA is a retirement plan set up by the self-employed, In that sense it is not a traditional IRA. You may continue to make a contribution to both a traditional and/or a Roth IRA in addition to what you contribute to the SEP. The SEP merely limits a possible deductible contribution to a traditional IRA.
