Are you saying dividends earned in a ROTH are not taxed when the money is withdrawn?

Isn't that the whole point of a ROTH? You pay tax on the money before you put it in, and you don't pay tax on anything you take out. The inverse of a Traditional IRA - there you don't pay tax on what you put in, but you pay tax on everything you take out.
