>> That doesn't make any sense. One of the really cool things about a 401k is that it's all tax deferred. So I don't know why you'd have to pay taxes on the dividends in there. <<An ESOP that is part of a 401K plan can choose to distribute the dividends outside the plan and make it taxable income at ordinary rates.I don't know why some plans do this, but mine does as well. Why they can't or won't keep the dividends tax-deferred in the account is beyond me.Tim
