<< IIRC, the poster's original question was whether the trading costs of a Roth IRA could be paid from outside that IRA. In response, I posted a government source saying that the answer is NO, but that source is a government publication for the public's use, not a code of law. I couldn't find any mention of trading costs in section 408A. Are they there somewhere I haven't been able to find? Is it possible that Congress was not explicit about these trading costs but left it to IRS to interpret the code on the matter? >>It's quite possible that Congress did exactly that. They love to leave things up to regulations, so they can go and campaign against the pointy-headed bureaucrats they instructed to write the regs.Since Roth IRAs operate the same as traditional, except where they don't (that's in the first couple of subsections of IRC 408A), the place to look is IRC 408, which sets the rules for traditional IRAs. (Think treasure hunt when you're researching the Code. It helps.)I've marked this to hunt for it later, when I have some time. I'll post the results, unless someone gets there ahead of me.TMF ExROPhil Marti
