You pay taxes on dividends whether they are reinvested or not, in a taxable account. They go on Schedule B.
If you are not talking taxable account, then you don't report dividends in either case, it is just a matter of how much money is taken out, except in a Roth where you don't pay taxes on dividends or gains at all.
So if what you are putting in your Roth is after-tax money anyway, no, it doesn't change your tax. It is when you roll a traditional deductible IRA into a Roth where there can be a hefty tax bill.
Best wishes, Chris
