I have searched this board looking for someone to pose this question to. If you start a Roth IRA with a discount broker do you have to pay capital gains on the stocks you buy and sell? My instincts tell me no, but when I asked Ameritrade this question they told me to check with my tax lawyer. If I hire a tax lawyer that would cut into what I have to invest. Where could I go to find this info? Isn't the limit for contributions to a Roth $2000 per year of earned income? Thanks if you can help me.
