I was in this situation a few years ago, having my 401k with Fidelity and rolling it into an IRA. The 401k included some already taxed funds. For me, Fidelity made the situation clear before the transaction and gave me choices. One was for the post-tax funds to end up in a non-IRA account, the other to deal with some sort of IRS reporting every year that I found intimidating. I chose to let the money go to a non-IRA taxable account, which worked out well for me as a cash cushion before reaching 59 1/2.

But to your original question... the money in that account did not incur any additional taxes for me. (At least not until I sold the investments I made with it for a capital gain.)
