i will max out my 401K for this year. I want to invest
an additional $2000 in the Roth IRA........

My question is :

1. Where do I get the Roth IRA ? Do I have to buy it at
the bank, or some mutual fund company ?
2. What r the annual return percentages in the Roth
IRA ?


You get a Roth IRA the same way you would get a savings account.

Any mutual fund company, stock broker, bank etc will open an account if you ask. Just call them on the phone. There may be a small fee so you should ask about fees.

The question is what do you want to invest in. If is is CD's a bank maybe ok. If it is mutual funds a fund company. If you don't know, a broker who sells all types of securities maybe best. If you need alot of help try a full service broker. You maybe be able to use the same company who runs your 401k and invest in the same investments. Call them and see if they will set up a Roth.
