>> As I've come to expect, the IRS doesn't make it clear if they are talking about the roth IRA or the ordinary IRA or both. Can you point me to source that confirms your claim?
------------------------------
My immediate source was a booklet that I received from my broker. I can come to the same conclusion from pertinent sections of several different IRS publications, but if you require citations from the IRS code, I think you should consult a tax lawyer, which I am not.

I read the passage you quoted as incomplete, because it doesn't take into account the possibility of non-deductible contributions to an IRA. All Roth contributions are non-deductible.
