A:

Because you are over age 59 ½, you will not owe any early-distribution penalty on any distributions you take from your Roth IRA. Also, because it has been more than five years since you established your first Roth IRA and you meet one of the exceptions (being at least age 59 ½), you will not owe tax on any distributions from your Roth IRA.
