This question was asked to a group of people, and different answers were given. I figure here will be a good place to clarify it.
If a person made a contribution to a Roth IRA every year for 5 years (as an example 2K yearly from 1998 to 2002); and after the 5 years withdrawl the complete balance of the account: Is any part of it taxable ???
Let's say that the balance is $15k out of which $10k were contributions.
Thanks in advance
