I may need to take about $300 out of one of my accounts to pay for a car repair. As far as tax implications go, which is 'better', the Roth IRA or the stock account?

Not enough info.

Define "better".

I don't know your circumstances, but I think in a majority of cases there should be only one option-
taking from the stock account.
