When you transfer your 401k money to an IRA, the after-tax contributions will come to you in a separate check. They cannot be put in the IRA, but they have already been taxed once, so they will not be taxed again. You do not have to report the after-tax contributions as income, you will not be taxed, and you may do with it as you please.Pixy Thanks for your clarification. I have another question. After-tax money can be broken down into what portion is contributions and what is earnings. I read where the contribution amount cannot be transferred from a 401k plan to an IRA account. What happens to the earnings portion?
