No. of Recommendations: 2
Thanks for letting me waste two posts on the board.

Well Ok, I'll waste another one in case someone else is trying to figure it out. Most 401k plans will allow after tax contributions. When you rollover the 401k you have some options with what to do with the after tax contributions. Generally I believe it is recommended that these funds be distributed separately from the tax deferred contributions and most commonly a check is written to you for those funds. Since these are funds already taxed this part of the distribution is not a taxable event.
