You quoted the section having to do with NON-Roth IRA's. If you follow the links from that page to the section that covers Roths, it says:

* Income earned on the contributions while in the Roth IRA account is excluded from gross income;

* Distributions made to the individual from the Roth IRA account are excluded from gross income to the extent they are excluded from federal gross income. A qualified distribution is excludable if the IRA is held for a five year period and one of the following conditions is met:

o at the time of the distribution, the recipient is at least 59 1/2 years old;
o the distribution must be made to a beneficiary or the individual's estate on or after the date of death;
o the recipient is disabled; or
o the distribution, up to a maximum of $10,000, is being used to pay for a qualified first time home buyer expense.

So I think TurboTax is wrong.
