Yes, Roth contributions can be made into your 401(k) plans BUT, and it is a big BUT, the plan must first adopt the ability to permit Roth contributions AND the Roth contributions must be placed into a separate sub-account of the 401(k) plan specifically designated for Roth contributions. The Trustee of the plan (typically you) must also account (through separate records) for all earnings that are generated from the Roth contributions. Keep in mind that the IRS will be really interested in you ensuring and proving that what is Roth IS Roth.
Fulcrum Self-Directed recommends that ALL 401(k) plans are established with sub-accounts, whether they be pre-tax contributory, rollover contributory, Roth contributory and profit share contributory accounts. They are established to protect you.
