Tomato, tomahto, indeed. You're not getting penalized 10% for withdrawing that Roth contribution. You're getting a smaller retirement savings credit than you would have had otherwise. And that's fair enough - the credit is determined (in part) by the net amount of your 2002 contributions to retirement savings (IRAs, 401Ks, 403Bs, etc.). You reduced that number by $1000 when you withdrew the contribution. Surely you don't expect to get credit for something you didn't do?Lorenzo
