Somehow that doesn't seem right. Maybe I am missing something, or not thinking about it in the right way?
Consider it this way;
When you took the loan, you spent that money the same as (and in replacement for) after-tax income money. In other words, whatever you spent that $50,000 on, if not for the loan you would have had to use after-tax money... right?
So, you're not re-contributing after-tax money to your 401K, you are simply replacing the after tax money you borrowed out and used as after-tax money expenditures.
