In a Roth 401K, since the employee match, is not taxed until retirement, is the employee match tax deductible?

If the employee matches 5%, the company does not pay taxes on that amount at that time, therefore, can you take that as a deduction since you will have to pay taxes on it at withdraw?

If an employee receives a company match on a Roth contribution, the company match is a pre-tax contribution.  Pre-tax contributions aren't deductible, because you haven't been taxed on them.
