I bought stock with basically all of my contributions, so what is to say which part of that stock is earnings and which is contributions?This is a moot question. There are no distictions among assets within any kind of IRA based on how the money got there (except for converted amounts in Roth IRAs, but we're not talking about that here). IRA assets are IRA assets. When taking "unqualified" distributions from a Roth IRA there are specific ordering rules based solely on $$ amounts. Those you'll find in Pub 590, but briefly, the first thing to come out is contributions.Phil
