Any money you put into the 401(k) is tax-deferred meaning you won't pay taxes until you take it out. Any gains made on that money will also not be taxed until you take that money out too. At retirement when you do take money out(contributions, capital gains, and dividends), it will all be treated the same. How it will be taxed however, will be at the mercy of Congress in the future.
