I am sure this must have been posted previously, but i am new to this board, so at the risk of asking you to repeat yourself:
If you are under 59 1/2 and you withdraw funds from a Roth IRA to pay for your kids' college ed., I realize you don't pay a 10% penalty and you pay no taxes on your Roth contributions. But do you pay taxes on the Roth earnings?
NBC News recently said "no," and my bud orangeblood agrees, but I had been told by more than one Fool "yes."
