It is immaterial that the person who sold the membership is not the person who sells the tangible personal property to a member.
Any sale of a membership described in subdivision (a)(1)(A) or (a)(1)(B) is regarded as related to the retail sale by the retailer selling tangible personal property to a member, not by the person selling the membership, measured by the amounts received by the person selling the membership. Charges for membership fees not related to anticipated retail transactions are not subject to tax.
For a distribution to be qualified, it must occur at least five years after the Roth IRA owner established and funded his/her first Roth IRA, and the distribution must occur under at least one of the following conditions: For example, if an individual establishes a Roth IRA at ABC Brokerage in 2015 and establishes a second Roth IRA at XYZ Brokerage in 2016, the five-year period that determines a qualified distribution begins in 2015, and the five-year period begins with the first day of the year for which the first contribution is made, which, in this case was January 1, 2015.
This is true even if the 2015 contribution was made at anytime up to April 15, 2016.
A non-qualified distribution that does not meet the above requirements may be subjected to income tax and/or the 10% early-distribution penalty.
The source of a non-qualified distribution determines the applicable tax treatment.
regardless of the amount of the membership fee, the retailer sells its products for a lower price to a person who has paid the membership fee than to a person who has not paid the fee.
(2) The membership fees described in subdivision (a)(1)(A) or (a)(1)(B) are part of the gross receipts of the person selling tangible personal property to a member.
The earnings on non-qualified distributions are subject to income tax.
Roth IRA distributions can come from the following four sources: To determine the source of assets distributed from a Roth IRA, the IRS uses the “ordering rules.” According to the ordering rules, assets are distributed from a Roth IRA in the following order.
When assets from one source are used up or non-existent, the assets are distributed from the next source in the list: Income tax and penalty are never applied to distributed assets for which no deduction was allowed when the assets were initially contributed to the IRA.

(2) This section also applies where - (a) a company intends to make, or has made, an application under Section 1003 of that Act (striking off on application by company), and (b) the company makes a distribution in respect of share capital in anticipation of its dissolution under that section.
