Greetings, Wisefool2, and welcome.

<<Can someone tell me if the trading costs associated with buying and selling stocks in an IRA account are paid for from the funds within the account, and if so are they considered a withdrawal from the account subject to income tax and potentially early withdrawal penalty of 10%? >>

Trading costs are paid from monies available within the IRA and they are not considered as a withdrawal. They have no impact on taxes at all.
