...The reason I ask is that arent the Roth tax rules changing in 2006 so that all dividends are tax free?

Nothing is taxed within a Roth IRA. I have 2-Roth IRAs, one of which I started when Roth IRAs were first started, IIRC, 7 or 8 years ago in a S&P 500 fund which pays about 1-1/2% dividends. No taxe. The other Roth is in a self-directed brokerage account. Some of these stocks pay dividends. No taxes on dividends or capital gains when sold at a profit, nada. Of course, no capital loss can be claimed either. Each Roth IRA is with a different company.
