As long as you just touch what you put in there aren't any penalties. If you touch money earned there is a 10% fed penalty. Here is a fact sheet.

Click me.

I am a pretty big fan of Roths personally, but if I were self employed there are a couple of other options.

I've been in the business for 29+ years so if you want you can follow up with a pm....By claim on my taxes at year end , do you mean report the 3000 distribution (withdrawl?) Yes, and it will help to provide the IRS with your logic for a PENALTY FREE WITHDRAWL, like a earlier account statement showing the contribution in the same amount.

I think Roths are pretty good if your are a). young, and b). in a reltively low tax bracket
I'd be especialy wary of Roth Conversions
